Underground Effect, live street art at La Défense

From September 19 to 24, 2017, 18 street artists will take over La Défense square as part of the Urban Week Paris La Défense. This project, UNDERGROUND EFFECT, is a beautiful opportunity to meet graffiti artists, talk with them and buy their works: a free event open to all and aiming at promoting street art.

For the third year in a row, Underground Effect will bring together street-art enthusiasts at La Défense. The event will evolve around two steps. From Tuesday September 19 to Thursday September 21, 2017, 18 graffiti artists from all over the world will be present from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. to create live works. Then, from Friday September 22 to Sunday September 24, 2017, these very same creations will be exhibited so that you can admire them.

Graffiti artists are all in for the Underground Effect of the Projet Saato related to La Défense and Indigo (car park operator) parking lots. The principle is simple: setting up street art works in the underground parking lots of the group to make them less worrisome.

This year, MR CENZ’s surrealist female portraits will be given pride of place as well as SMUG’s ultra-realistic portraits, Kalouf’s anamorphosis and Brusk’s crazy graffities…

In total: 18 street artists will take over La Défense square for a 3-day in situ work session. Once they’ll be finished, works will be exhibited for three days before being set up in the local car parks.

During the Underground Project festival, you can:

  • meet artists and talk with them,
  • be introduced to stencil with a selection of patterns especially created for the event,
  • customize and buy a T-shirt and Tote Bag with street-art visuals and themes,
  • buy a reproduction of the 30 graffities sold as a limited edition by WASAA

The highlight of this meeting will be the opening evening open to all and held on Thursday September 21, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., in a dance-hall atmosphere provided by GroovShakra and Mayah Level.

Beautiful meetings ahead!
