A graff performance is possible with all kinds of events:
graffiti festival, concert, exhibition fair, street festival, TV show, show setting…

For the spectator, painting is no longer a fixed object, it is built in front of him. As for the painter, his whole approach is highlighted.

For the festival “Chalon dans la rue” 2004 and 2005 the “hetaone sessions” brought together more than 80 of the best national and international graffiti artists (Spain, Canada, Croatia…) to paint in a few days two thousand square meters of walls…
