Dulux Walls Are Dancing

Dulux worked with mural painter MWM (Matt W Moore) to create a series of live painting performances on walls in Marseille, Lyon and Paris, an expression of the Let’s Colour Project. French film directing collective Le Groupuscule captured the evolution of each mural, gathering over 700,000 pictures, editing them together to an new music track by Monsieur Monsieur, “Walls Are Dancing”.

The Let’s Colour project, launched in the beginning of 2010, invites members of the public to reclaim their own environments and regenerate them through colour. The initiative has already led the brand to transform neighbourhoods in Rio (Brazil), Aulnay-sous-Bois (France), London (Great Britain), Jodhpur (India) and Istanbul (Turkey).

The Walls are Dancing project involved 700,000 images, 70 colours, 150 rolls of film, 300 litres of paint, and 330 people signed in the guestbook.
