This 80 m2 painting by the famous artist Guillaume Bottazzi is in the heart of the historical district.
After a month of work in full view of the inhabitants of Martigues, Guillaume Bottazzi, French artist, unveils his work in the heart of the Ile district. It is on an 82 m² wall that the painter offers a free interpretation of a fresco 10 meters high by 8 meters wide (2018). A monumental and poetic painting, part of the martégal heritage and inspired by the maritime history of Martigues. A shades of blue that evoke Martigues, a fishing town. His signature ? The curves. These large color curves are said to reduce anxiety. The artist wanted to start with the idea of a form that awakens, referring to the comings and goings on the canal. Then, everyone is free to interpret it according to their sensitivity. Located on a facade in the Ile district, near the entrance to the port, this work is a real lighthouse which indicates the course to boats coming from the Mediterranean. The artist uses a 16th century oil on canvas technique. A superimposition of layers of paint using the glazing technique which allows the colors to be sublimated by playing on the transparencies. Guillaume Bottazzi also produced the largest painting in Japan. A permanent work of 900 m², a jewel of contemporary art on the island of Hokkaido. The artist also produced a work in Paris (La Défense) of 216 m² and a work in Brussels (Place Jourdan) of 112 m². The artist from Lyon has signed more than 65 projects in the public space, chaining gigantic murals in urban areas. Enjoy an outdoor cultural walk through 10 cities in France including Martigues, Marseille and Mandelieu-la-Napoule. An invitation to well-being through the works of Guillaume Bottazzi.
