Under Pressure Festival 2021

Here’s a photo gallery featuring all the works produced during the 2021 edition of the Under Pressure Festival. As in 2020, walls were not all painted on the same weekend because of social restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Most of the walls were painted over a few weeks in August. For other editions, see the general Under Pressure Festival page.

Cet article-photo présente les oeuvres produites au cours de l’édition 2021 du Festival Under Pressure. Tout comme en 2020, les murs n’ont pas été peints au cours de la même fin de semaine dans le but de respecter les restrictions sociales découlant de la pandémie de Covid-19. Ceci étant dit, la majorité des murs ont été peints en août. Pour les autres éditions, voir la page générale du Festival Under Pressure.
