Monday Mural: Rugby Club de Versailles

Some of you might remember that electrical enclosures in the city have now become canvases for the Versailles Mural Art School. This one, which is signed T. Robin, is located in Porchefontaine neighbourhood and... well, I'm sure you don't really need a translation for it! More murals can be seen @ Oakland Daily Photo!

Certains d'entre vous se souviennent peut-être que les armoires électriques de la ville sont devenues des toiles pour l'Ecole d'Art Mural de Versailles. Celle-ci, signée T. Robin, se trouve à Porchefontaine. Pour voir plus de fresques, c'est à Oakland que ça se passe ! Et pour jouer au rugby à Versailles, c'est par ici !

Ooh, I like the vintage look too - I'd also not seen the prior 'electricity' mural and it is fabulous! What a great idea to showcase art in these spaces.

This is a wonderful idea!

I like the style of this one too! So retro in a good way.

A brilliant idea Ciel, you can't go wrong with retro, everyone loves remembering how things were. I think there's a bit of rugby 'stuff' going on over here at the moment :)

This one is excellent, my hats off to the artist.

I can't get enough murals, but out here in the 'burbs, they are scarce.

I love the graphics.

Like others, I really enjoy the retro design of this mural. Looks like the era of Gatsby. Thanks, Ciel, for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

My first thought was "That goes way back!" My second thought was, "Our eldest daughter played rugby. I think." My third thought was "Football without all the pads and protection." Okay, I'm going to quit thinking now.

No, no explanation needed. ;)

What a great idea!

Very stylish. It looks like posters from the 1920s.

This is much more than a mural: very nice vintage work!

Halcyon said...

Really nice one! I like this idea of making something ugly into a showcase for art!
