All sidewalks lead to art

The soul of the Neuchâtel Mountains inscribed on the walls

Each year, the exomusée is enriched with creations by international figures of the street art scene. Monumental frescoes or graffiti to discover at the corner of a street, these works echo the questions of our time and shed new light on the history and the peculiarities of a city of character, distinguished by UNESCO for its watchmaking architecture. Thanks to the talent of artists who sometimes work at dizzying heights, the public space of Locle turns into an open-air museum over time.

Synonymous with creativity, freedom, generosity, sharing and courage, the street art movement is often militant, nomadic, sometimes rooted but always curious to confront the unknown and otherness. The exomusée’s collection reflects the exotic outlook street artists have on the region.

2022

Autumn is here, but the street art season is not over yet.

Like the Finnish artist Jussi TwoSeven, Mazatl has taken up the theme of the « smuggler’s dog ». Known worldwide for his style reminiscent of engraving, a true icon of the Mexican street art scene, Mazatl gives us a metaphorical representation that illustrates the condition of one of these mastiffs who once transported goods across the border.
