Montrouge (a commune in southern Paris, France) was also where Moebius once had an artists studio and located in the newly restored Cultural Centre of Montrouge is a gigantic 5m high x 35m long wall covering fresco named Le Saut De L’Ange (The Angel’s Leap) that was originally drawn by Moebius but completed by a team of artists posthumously in 2012. In celebration of the life of this great artist, the Montrouge main hall is named after Moebius.
