Horticultural Street Art Activists to the Rescue
These gardens have been maintained by gardeners. For generations.
Now the city council wants to take them over to build a new “eco-district” here in the Les Vaîtes neighborhood of Besançon. And the soil tenders say “These are Our Gardens,” resisting the change, insisting on the historical respect they believe these gardens deserve.
After spending many days with them, taking pictures and speaking with everyone, artist Anaïs Florin decided she could help by creating posters to highlight their struggle.
“Les Vaîtes before the eco-discrict” ! She put up some legally, and some illegally in the city center by taking over the bus stop shelter. Viva Les Vaîtes!

Yes, your grandmother is going to know about Vhils now.
YZ Yseult: Making of the Mural La Marianne
Marianne is a symbol of Republican France. A Marianne is a bust of a proud and determined woman wearing a Phrygian cap. She symbolises the attachment of the common citizens of the revolution to the Republic – Marianne is liberty, egality and fraternity.
The first thing you should know is that Marianne is a symbol in France – capturing the spirit of liberty, equality, and brotherhood/sisterhood (Liberté, Equalité, Fraternité). Commonly depicted as a proud and determined woman wearing a Phrygian cap, Marianne symbolises the attachment of the common citizens of the revolution to the Republic.
Street Artist YZ and engraver Elsa Catelin have just finished their view of the heralded symbol on the streets of Périgueux (Dordogne) – and it actually became the new face of Marianne stamps. Selected by the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, YZ had the opportunity to meet him and see her work unveiled across a 16 meter by 11 meter wall.
