For several years, street art has been quite noticeable in the Bordeaux metropolis. The Bernard Magrez Institute and the Shake Well Festival are the best testaments to that. Since Vatel Bordeaux is on the lookout for new trends since its creation in 1994, Aurélien Dessailloud, Art Director of the Bernard Magrez Institute, chairs the jury.
Global representation of urban art
The wide geographical spectrum of the submissions is a very good indicator of the global influence of graffiti. We received works from different countries: Burkina Faso, Canada,Colombia Spain, France, Italy Mexico, Peru, Switzerland, Venezuela. The 132 artists competing have 27 different nationalities.
Since the introduction of its international courses in 2013, Vatel Bordeaux has welcomed many international students. In 2019, 55 nationalities out of overall 706 students make up our international community. Our point is: At Vatel Bordeaux, cultural diversity is essential.
