New Amaury Dubois Fresco in Wambrechies
Amaury Dubois realised a fresco for the city of Wambrechies in France. Painted in 2 weeks, on wooden panels, it was assembled in a fresco of 30m ² which comes to dress the main wall of the harbour master’s office of the city. It was inaugurated on Saturday, November 20 on the port of Wambrechies in the presence of the artist and Sebastien Brogniart, mayor of the city. It is in the port of Wambrechies, his home town, that Amaury Dubois decided to paint his latest street art mural.
“I live in Wambrechies, I love this city, it is the cradle of all my works. I wanted to mark this territory, the epicenter of my achievements. This fresco is for me like a totem that symbolises my ground of creation and inspiration.” Amaury Dubois
This fresco, with its curves, vivid colours, and light, is typical of Amaury Dubois’ hallmark style. Seaweed, scales, and waves are depicted as a tribute to the city’s port’s aquatic life. The piece depicts the inextricable connection that exists between the city and the river that runs through it.
“We are very pleased that this magnificent work of Amaury Dubois will illuminate our city. We are proud that this internationally renowned artist has chosen Wambrechies to create his works, proof that he feels good here and that the city inspires him!” Sébastien Brogniart, Mayor of Wambrechies
He added a new level to his work in 2020, transforming the interior of a 19th century church into a unique 600m2 fresco. Following in the footsteps of Picasso, Matisse, and Okuda, Amaury Dubois joins a small group of modern artists who have created this astonishing performance. The Italian magazine Collater.al named this artwork one of the top ten most beautiful street art murals in the world in 2020. This mural is the artist’s final piece of this sort. In April 2022, his next fresco will be completed and installed in the Church of Calais, France.
