Mural artists have taken over the town of Bergerac

Stencils, brushes and spray paint have been out since Wednesday May 8 in Bergerac (Dordogne). For the third year in a row, urban art specialists met in the city of Cyrano to participate in the street art festival, called Art Tak. For four days, you can discover the work of these artists, spread around the “spot” installed for the occasion at Place Gambetta.


Many wonder what will become of the works created on ephemeral modules.
