The Côte du Midi come to Toulouse

Anamorphosis trail

Whether you're from Toulouse or elsewhere, you immersed yourself into the Rugby World Cup 2023 and took an imaginary journey along the Côte du Midi, on the shores of the Mediterranean. Thanks to the five anamorphoses in Toulouse city centre, created by internationally renowned artists Sweo and Nikita.

The anamorphosis will be removed from Toulouse in the next few days !

A look back at this event!

An Ana... what?

An anamorphosis

An anamorphosis is a deliberately distorted image which, when viewed from a specific angle, reveals itself to be... in 3D! So you need to position yourself correctly to take the photo, but don't worry, we've thought of where to put your feet.

Who were the artists

Sweo and Nikita

Based in Montpellier, Sweo and Nikita are a couple of self-taught painters. Fascinated by drawing, and then by the effervescence of hip-hop culture in the 90s, they started practising spray-painting and graffiti very early on. Now as accomplished artists, Nikita and Sweo combine their techniques to produce works in 3D anamorphosis, in which they have become internationally renowned specialists.
