Following on from several frescoes inaugurated in Brussels city centre, PARCOURS Street Art is now unveiling a 140 m² fresco by Brussels-born artist Sozyone in the Van Praet bridge neighbourhood, on the border with the municipality of Schaerbeek. The building’s location offers a perfect vantage point from which to view this new work, which can be seen from the bridge. It adds a splash of colour to the panorama within which it currently stands. As well as showcasing emerging Belgian and international artists, PARCOURS Street Art is also a showcase for leading figures in the sector.

This fresco was created in collaboration with, which recently became the owner of this building and was immediately enthusiastic about the initiative. “We believe that urban art can also be an effective tool for revitalising a neighbourhood, whether temporarily, as in this case, or permanently. We’re also delighted that the buildings we’re redeveloping can be used to showcase the City’s cultural dynamism. So, for us, a partnership with the City’s PARCOURS Street Art project was a no-brainer,” adds Benjamin Cadranel, Managing Director of

The project was also carried out in collaboration with the non-profit organisation Une Ville en Couleur. The non-profit had already worked with the City in 2017 on Sainer’s now-famous ‘Mother’ fresco on Boulevard Simon Bolivar. The organisation aims to develop contemporary art in the city and shares the same objectives as PARCOURS Street Art. They want to make the art world accessible to everyone. To achieve this objective, they work primarily in public spaces on works that will be around for the long term, in a spirit of smartening up the city, and exchanging and sharing, in order to create, little by little, an open gallery akin to an urban museum.
