Address Mémoire du XXe Ciel 14 Rue Saint-André, 16000 Angoulême, France

Drawn on a wall in the square Saint-André in Angoulême, Mémoire du XXe ciel by the comic book artist Yslaire is one of the most popular painted walls in the city.

Fresco created in 1997 under the request of the city of Angoulême to the author of comics Yslaire, Mémoire du XXe ciel is one of the most famous and appreciated walls in the city. The title refers to Yslaire’s work on the myth of guardian angels.

It has the particularity of being perfectly embedded in the architecture of the city of Angoulême making the fresco fascinating:

“The order of Angoulême did not involve me on a completely unknown ground…, I knew that it was not necessary to seek to compete with the architectural framework, but on the contrary to seek the dialogue with respect and humility…” Yslaire
