The official and conventionné art (including condominiums) painted walls of Lyon hides its origins: the art of graffiti wild. It was a great development in 1968, when the premises of the School of Fine Arts, then located on the slopes of the Croix Rousse, has formed a generation of graffiti artists, crossing experiences and printing silk with the revolutionary tradition of the Croix-Rousse. This tradition is now focused on its slopes (part of the Croix-Rousse between northern place Tereaux and southern boulevard Croix Rousse), plateau (north of the boulevard) is now fully bobo. Then graffiti art cross-Roussien has experienced a revival in the birth of hip-hop and graffiti in New York and his arrival in France. Today, this area of the slopes of the Croix-Rousse remains by far the most intense instead of street art in Lyon. With the worst and the best.
