Our team

Creativity, technical competence and project management

CitéCréation is a cooperative limited liability company founded in 1978, with its head office in Oullins (Greater Lyon), France. It is composed of a multidisciplinary team of experts including eight salaried associates.

Our international presence is ensured by two subsidiaries (DekorativeCity in Germany and MuraleCréation in Canada) and two agency offices (Jerusalem and Shanghai). Along the lines of the buddy system our team relies on 80 very high level mural painters, as well as on other professional actors of the urban landscape: architects, urban planners, landscapers, light designers, artists, digital designers, etc.

We are structured to fully manage any design and production project, therefore ensuring that the contracting owner or the general contractor is free of worry and sure of obtaining the best quality execution within an optimal timeframe.

All our designs are produced by our artists in-house.
