You probably know the Kinépolis cinema in Mulhouse, and if you’ve ever been there to see a movie, you must have parked in its multi-story parking lot. There wasn’t much to see at the time, but now, film or not, you MUST go there: this huge parking lot has become Graffitipolis, and the thousands of square meters of walls have taken on magnificent colors under the bombs, brushes and stencils of some sixty artists.
This magnificent urban art project was born thanks to the association of several partners: the Kinépolis, the MUR Mulhouse (wall located on the rue de la Moselle, which is decorated each month with new drawings and colors), the MUR Colmar and the urban art gallery of Orlinda Lavergne in Mulhouse.
Whether you like street art or not, I think it’s a place to see: you can admire different techniques, frescoes, lettering, and even works in “3D” … I do not say more, it is to discover. If you have kids, they’ll love it too. Alone, as a couple, with family or friends, you will have great photos to take!
Personally, what I liked the most were the frescoes. Animals, famous people – real or fictional, manga-like drawings, futuristic scenes, there is something for everyone. Many stencils were also made on the columns of the parking lot. A great way to discover another Mulhouse, whose streets are already very decorated by street art. By the way, I recommend the visit of the Tourist Office on this theme, which I had the chance to do a few years ago – and loved it. I take this opportunity to thank Clémence and Bénédicte who were my guides for Graffitipolis this time 😉
It’s great, it’s really original and it’s free access (just be careful with the opening hours of the parking). I think we can classify it as a must-see in Mulhouse! Another good reason to come – and even to come back since artists regularly come to paint the still bare walls. The promise to see many more beautiful works at
- Everything – I think that’s clear!
