This book is conceived as a photographic report of the Rose Béton biennale which took place in Toulouse from April 2019 to January 2020. It presents the final works created by the artists especially for this occasion, but also reveals the creative process behind these monumental paintings, both within the Musée des Abattoirs and on the city walls.
For this edition of the biennale, a dialogue is established between generations, nationalities and mediums, with the participation of Tania Mouraud, a French contemporary artist whose particular calligraphic style has moved from the museum to the street, Cleon Peterson, whose graphic work depicts a chaotic and violent world, Todd James, a graffiti artist with colourful, sensual and ironic paintings, as well as Hense, Mademoiselle Kat, Rero, Mark Jenkins, Momo, Moses & Taps, and Jeroen Erosie. All these artists have in common their relationship to the street and their desire to share their view of the world through art.
