This is the second of two posts about a series of wall paintings in Chamonix in the area known as La Cite Scolaire. Click here if you would like to know a little more about where these are located and see the first batch posted. These images date back to the summer of 2010 and the spring of 2011. So there is no guarantee these will still be there – they may have been over-painted by now.
These are dramatic images – massive canvases – and difficult to capture easily. If I was taking these images now I would probably choose to take a series of images and stitch them together in Photoshop.
The first three are all taken of one major fresco. This is a huge artwork with what I think might be Nemo at its centre, and some stylised figures scattered toward the corners.
The other three that follow are more difficult to de-code but are nonetheless dramatic and highly skilled in their execution.
