Street art

A BMX bike cut in half which seems to be coming out of a wall. Why not? There’s more than one way to see Montpellier. When you look at it with more open eyes, you will see that the city is overflowing with art.

Yes, graffiti is an art, and it’s doing just fine, thank you very much. Through frescoes, mosaics, lettering, geometric shapes, collages, stencils, stickers and more, local and international artists add colour to the city. Whole walls in the Rondelet District are opened up to graffiti artists, the hunt for Space Invaders is on in the Ecusson, and galleries showcase some of the biggest names in street art.


Tip: Return to the roots of this misunderstood art on the Quai du Verdanson along an itinerary dedicated exclusively to graffiti.
