A quick overview
Street art in Marseille really took off in the 1980s, and it became more pronounced in 2013 during the European Capital of Culture year in Marseille. And certain areas of the city have become veritable showcases for street art with the blessing of the local authorities and the biggest gallery owners.
Leading and emerging artists succeed one another in putting their signature on the city’s walls. Marseille, which is regularly among the most Instagrammable cities in Europe, finds its murals on the social networks of professional or occasional bloggers from all over the world. This is becoming a real travel goal, especially for citybreakers, and also a real theme to regularly animate your articles and reports.
The very personal selection that you can find below may no longer exist in part, but other ephemeral works will catch your eye and that of your photo reporters in these neighbourhoods that make a place for urban art.
