Marmande Street Art: Art De La Rue
I spotted these pieces of street art during a recent trip to Marmande in the Lot-et-Garonne département in south-western France. I'll post more photos of the town itself (famous for its production of tomatoes) in another post and add more street art snaps should I find any more hidden on my camera or phone.

I loved this short, 9-minute film by Doug Gillen -- titled "CHANGE" -- which details the work of the "Void Projects" art collective in Ferizaj, Kosovo.
Some beautiful street art and stories.
Per the press release: "Set against the backdrop of a global pandemic, the film follows 10 international artists reflecting on the history of a country healing from war. In collaboration with the local community, this new generation of creatives discover the human stories of Ferizaj. Art in the city becomes a visual celebration of connectedness at a time of shared distance."
Artists featured include: Ampparito, Aruallan, Micheal Beitz, Helen Bur, Emilio Cerezo, Doa Oa, Alba Fabre, Ivan Floro, Maria Jose Gallardo, Retry One, Zane Prater, Vlada Trocka and Axel Void

Here’s the description:
“The untold story of the world’s most famous artist, the empire he built and the movement he inspired.
“The mystery surrounding ‘Banksy’, the anonymous street artist whose illegal stencils, pranks, invasions and interventions have outraged the establishment while captivating ordinary people across the planet for more than two decades. But despite being one of the most important figures of our times, Banksy has remained an enigma, with little known about the circumstances of his life and work.
“Banksy & The Rise of Outlaw Art” finally reveals Banksy’s story, from his roots in a criminal subculture to his rise as the leader of an art revolution.
“Featuring: art promoter Steve Lazarides; Bristol graffiti pioneer John Nation; renowned street artists Ben Eine, Risk, Felix ‘Flx’ Braun, KET & Scape, plus a host of art experts and cultural commentators.”
