Amaury Dubois realized a fresco for the city of Wambrechies in France. Painted in 2 weeks, on wooden panels, it was assembled in a fresco of 30m ² which comes to dress the main wall of the harbour master’s office of the city. It will be inaugurated on Saturday, November 20 on the port of Wambrechies in the presence of the artist and Sebastien Brogniart, mayor of the city. It is in the port of Wambrechies, his home town, that Amaury Dubois has put down bombs and brushes to paint his latest street art fresco. This work of 30m ² comes to dress with colors and curves the main wall of the harbor master’s office. The artist wanted to offer his territory an original artwork, symbolizing his attachment to the city.
“I live in Wambrechies, I love this city, it is the cradle of all my works. I wanted to mark this territory, the epicenter of my achievements. This fresco is for me like a totem that symbolizes my ground of creation and inspiration.” Amaury Dubois, contemporary painter.
Curves, bright colors and light, for a hymn to underwater life This fresco, characteristic of the style of Amaury Dubois by its curves, its bright colors and its light. Seaweed, scales and waves are represented as a hymn to the underwater life of the city’s port. The work illustrates the inseparable link between the city and the river that runs through it.

A new mural by the artist
In 2020, he took on a new dimension and transformed the interior of a 19th century church into a unique 600m2 fresco. After Picasso, Matisse or Okuda, Amaury Dubois joins the very closed circle of contemporary artists having realized this extraordinary performance. This mural was elected among the 10 most beautiful street art murals in the world in 2020 by the Italian magazine Collater.al.
This mural is the last work of this type made by the artist. His next fresco is in preparation and will decorate the church of Calais – France (62) in spring 2022
