The mythical swimming pool Molitor in Paris, which closed its doors in 1989, became for 25 years the Mecca of street art, where the biggest names have succeeded, painting floor to ceiling, from the roof to the bottom of the pools. But this incredible place has now reopened in May 2014 as a 5-star hotel, where the two pools, the winter pool and the summer pool, were completely renovated. A project that is controversial because of its elitist approach and its prohibitive rates.

It’s in this strange context that the artist Balder invited artists of the French and international contemporary scene to re-invest the place, taking possession of the cabins of the winter pool. An exhibition entitled “Under the Wave” which echo to the creations of artists like Mr. Brainwash, Futura, Vhils or Blek le rat, that you can find in the basements of Molitor.
Among the artists invited for “Under the Wave” you can meet :
