Mist Mural at Place Rondelet, Montpellier

Mist Mural at Place Rondelet, Montpellier

The Mist Mural at Place Rondelet is so-called because it was created by the street artist, Mist. Mist spent two days creating the 200 square-meter mural. He is known for his abstract images, but this massive mural showcases his work on a much larger scale.

The mural was arranged by Gallery At Down to function as a type of advertisement for Mist's solo show at the gallery in 2014. It has since become one of many murals that paint the city of Montpellier.

The mural at Place Rondelet is located on the side of a commercial building that houses a salon, various boutiques and services. Jutting through the parking area of the large post office, the mural is both easily viewed and accessed for photos.

Mist is the street name of artist Guillaume Lemarquier. In addition to the artwork that he creates out of his studio in Montpellier, he is known as a toy designer.
