The Tunnel des Tuileries goes very colorful! For two weeks, a dozen artists cover the Parisian tunnel reserved to soft mobilities in colorful murals to see until July 2023.

Walked by pedestrians, cyclists, and scooter riders, the Tunnel des Tuileries is considered as dark and sad by those going there. But until July 24, 2022, a dozen residing artists will turn this tunnel into a genuine masterpiece covered in colors and murals inspired by the city, running until July 2023.

Since July 11, street-art pieces are starting to cover the 860-m-long tunnel to voie Georges-Pompidou. Since 2016, when it closed to cars, soft mobility riders are allowed to take it. With the Concorde tunnel – also housing a bicycle lane – bicycles can go to the Champs-Elysées, avoiding traffic jam and dangers. A bit worrying, the tunnel is only lit by dim lights and there are still the dark walls and aeration turbines now out of order.

All these colorful murals will give some peps to the place and make it livelier, for people visiting it daily’s greatest joy. Artists are inspired by the direct surroundings of the tunnel, between the Seine, the Louvre, the Tuileries garden, to discover until July 2023, free of charge. And artists are: Andrea Ravo Mattoni, Bault, Erell, Hydrane, Jussi TwoSeven, Lek & Sowat, Madame, Romain Froquet, Sifat and WAR!.
