Engie, a French energy group, recently launched the international advertising campaign ‘Engie Harmony’. The campaign's first project is called ‘Solar Graffiti’ and features an installation on a sports field near Mexico City that combines the graffiti art of the local Street Artists N3O with Heliatek's (Dresden, Germany) solar films to power innovative and sustainable lighting. The project ‘Solar Graffiti’ and the resulting commercial are among the seven flagship projects of the Engie Harmony campaign and are intended to symbolise how technical progress can be realised in harmony with man and nature.
