Welcome to the website of the Fondation Tanagra, a cultural non-profit organization, founded in Switzerland in 1998 by BillyBoy* and Jean Pierre Lestrade, a.k.a. Lala.

We are happy to present you a brand new space with a new design, new articles, larger images and even videos via Youtube. The works of BillyBoy* & Lala is shown on a differentiated website: Mdvanii.ch

We intend to further develop the themes explored by the Fondation Tanagra - Art - Fashion - Culture - not only with articles in these categories but also various exhibitions in relation with these topics. This was done recently in 2013 with the exhibitions "House of Mdvanii" at the Espace Artsenal and Aldo Lanzini photographic show at the Galery Paul Bovée, both in Delémont, capital of the Republic of the Canton of Jura, where we established the Fondation Tanagra in 2011.

The Fondation Tanagra as well as BillyBoy* & Lala have left Delémont in 2016 to establish themselves permanently in the beautiful region named Ajoie, located in the Swiss Jura.

Enjoy the visit!
