The Bordeaux-based artist Charlie Devier looks to transform our gaze on the pavement, turning our streets into real artworks. He “paints in nature” on the shapes of these manhole covers, plugs and drain inlets, changing the meaning of this expression used to qualify painting outdoors and that was made famous by the Impressionists. Using colour to underline the shapes on these manhole covers, he “un-camouflages” them, attempting to create a shift from banality to extraordinary. Midway between an onsite installation and a street artwork, Charlie Devier’s artistic intervention poetically imagines a new urban space to be explored. 

The initial intervention project has joined forces with the awareness campaign “The Garonne starts here” that is led by the water sanitation service of L’Eau Bordeaux Métropole, to unfold in several areas of the metropolis, between June and September 2019: around the rue Judaïque, the Place du Marché des Chartrons, the Place Fernand Lafargue. For these interventions, Charlie Devier is using a paint produced in France and labelled EXCELL+, with no danger or toxic substances for the environment.
