Street Art enlivens the city
Acting for cities is all about beautifying them, breathing life into them and making them attractive to those who live, work and relax there or who are just passing through.
In July 2017, ATENOR unveiled its fresco THE FUTURE IS EUROPE.
As part of its projects in the heart of the European District, ATENOR provided URBANA ASBL, an urban contemporary art company, with the finance and means to execute a huge fresco on one of Brussels most busy thoroughfares. Atenor has thereby seized the opportunity to embellish and animate the urban landscape in this strategic district, with a 30-metre high and 20-metre wide fresco with a surface area of 530 m².
“THE FUTURE IS EUROPE” is testimony to ATENOR’s commitment to Europe and to European construction, with Brussels as its Capital.
By implementing this project, URBANA and ATENOR share a desire to highlight the benefits of integrating art projects into economic projects and thus support culture through the crossover of different fields that a priori appear to be in opposition.
In 2019, keen to move a little further forward in its role as an urban actor, ATENOR has opted to take a sideways look at cities through Street ArtSharing the same passion for cities, their history, their citizens and their evolution, ATENOR and the photographer BENOÎT FERON have joined forces to launch the exhibition « Art for Cities ».
