The CitéCréation cooperative is a business specialised in communication through urban aestheticism. It is the product of the "Populart” association, founded in 1978 to produce monumental wall paintings in urban environments.

It produces various mural works, from the most simple illustrations to the most sophisticated trompe-l’œil, not to mention frescos and urban events. It has created over 650 monumental works. The company has vast technical knowledge and offers high quality artistic productions. Nine months of work are needed, on average, to complete a fresco and a trompe-l’œil. The work includes several phases – the choice of colours, producing scale models, enlarging photos on the model, etc.

CitéCréation is one of the few muralists with a mastery of all creation processes. Many frescos have been produced a broad by subsidiaries in Quebec and Germany, as well as through partnerships in Israel, Russia and China. One of their works, titled "The Tony Garnier Urban Museum”, in Lyon, is made up of 26 frescos and received UNESCO’s "World Decade for Cultural Development” label in 1991.
