1. The capital of Breton street art
Street art is everywhere in Rennes, in the form of graffiti, collages, stencils, stickers, on walls and on building site fences. With poppies, dragonflies and giant meerkats, WAR! (Fr) grabs the headlines. His desire to remain anonymous earns him the nickname “the Banksy of Rennes”. Aerial frescoes and HeolArt (FR) hyper-realistic portraits by Aero other references of Rennes street art also attract attention. Discover them on a stroll on your own or on a guided tour with Destination Rennes. On the first Sunday of the month, an open-air gallery, MUR, in Rue Vasselot, hosts artists from every walk of life who create original designs in front of spectators. Another highlight of street art is the Teenage Kicks (FR) Biennial, which provides a unique and demanding look at contemporary urban creation. The renewal of the Wall of Flame is one of the stars.
