The most famous mouse on the planet is celebrating its 90th birthday ! Imagined by Walt Disney in 1928, Mickey Mouse appears for the first time on the screens in a black and white cartoon, the first to have enjoyed a synchronized soundtrack on its release.
Since then, this timeless icon has remained omnipresent in everyone’s mind. A large circle for the head, two small circles for the ears: it is enough to evoke Mickey.
In 2018, Disney celebrates the figure of Mickey everywhere in France by revealing the character from various creative angles. Four graffiti artists have been selected to revisit Mickey, in Paris, Lyon, Marseille and Bordeaux. The French people are invited to find works of art hidden in these cities from August 27 to September 9. Everyone can share the image discovered on the networks, with the hashtag of his city (for example #Lille or #Bordeaux) and #Mickey90.
In Lyon, the artists’ collective La Coulure has been selected to create a « Mickey is cool ». #Lyon
In Paris, it is the street artist who transcribes the figure of Mickey in an artistic style of its own: exploded and destructured. #Paris
In Bordeaux, JAEN reveals a surreal Mickey Mouse floating in a dream world. #Bordeaux
For Marseille, Remy Uno has worked on a rather vintage Mickey painting that reflects the character’s enthusiasm and bonhomie. #Marseille
It’s up to you to discover these 4 works hidden everywhere in your city, Lyon, Bordeaux, Marseille and Paris, from August 27th to September 9th.
A winner will be randomly selected to win a weekend at Disneyland Paris and the most represented city will be named “France’s most enthusiastic city”. She will have the honor of hosting a special event for Mickey’s birthday.
