Place Guillaume II
Urban art can even be found in the very heart of the City, at the Knuedler.
The ventilation tower of the car park under Place Guillaume II – which is set to be demolished – is repainted on a regular basis by different artists. Sader, Michel Kremer, Riots, Alain Welter and Pol Summer have all produced artworks using this structure, which will eventually be dismantled.
Currently, passers-by can admire the work of artist Thomas Iser. The window that was only recently painted on the ventilation tower is meant to break through appearances: it symbolises imagination and an escape from daily routine. Thomas Iser has painted such windows in many places throughout the world, including on the West Bank wall and in downtown New-York.
Free expression wall in Dommeldange
The free-expression wall in Dommeldange has regularly been repainted by professional artists since 2014.
The project is coordinated by the artist Stick, who makes sure that the subjects depicted are not offensive or indecent. To take part in the project, applicants must contact the project coordinator and receive authorisation from the municipal authorities.
Ephemeral is the watchword in urban art. Since late February 2019, the free-expression wall has been decked with a new muralby the artists Stick and Musk.
Former abattoirs in Hollerich
The walls of the former abattoirs have long served as a playground for graffiti artists of all ages. Free expression is encouraged: no specific authorisation is needed to do graffiti here, and existing pieces are constantly giving way to new creations.
Partner project: Rue d'Anvers
In 2002, in memory of Spencer Dos Santos Lima, aka Speak One, who died that year at the age of 20, the artists STICK and NYTO, acting on the initiative of DJ 400 COUPS LOSKAR, spontaneously produced a mural on the electricity substation in the Pétrusse valley.
In recent years, the mural had been defaced by drawings, tags and various inscriptions. Creos, in a joint initiative with the City of Luxembourg, decided to have the mural restored by the same artists. For Speak One's family and friends, the spot has once again become a place of remembrance and gathering worthy of the young man.
