If you fancy Streetart but maybe not really up for walking through the city to find it, this type of event is best to satisfy your curiosity. now you can check it out in a "museum". I know, museum is a lot said, but a former Supermarket (Delhaize) was transformed in an expo for StreetArt. It will be opened from Wednesday to Sunday for coursios people to check it out. Please keep an eye on the Project Link to ensure accurate information.
At the initiative of streetartfestivalbelgium, Hasselt is a city that has some streetart pieces to be really proud of.
The city of Mechelen in Belgium together with a local graffiti designer, Gijs Vanhee decided to work on a project called "Mechelen Muur". At this project 10 other graffiti creators participated to change the face of the city. They choose several walls from the city and decorated them with stunning pieces of art.
Unfortunately I did not get to see all the murals in the city but I will put pictures I took from the ones I saw adding the address. I discovered on YouTube that there are the cool making of from all the graffiti so I added the video. I will add only name and street of the murals I did not see and hopefully I'll get to see them net time I'll be in Mechelen.
Enjoy the stunning pieces of art!
The Gift - Gijs Vanhee, Adegemstraat
Gijs Vanhee is a graphis designer from Mechelen and as mentioned the initiator of Mechelen Muurt. Below you can see the making of of his amazing pieces of art
When you walk through the city and you start recognizing the artists behind a mural by the style it means 2 things: the artist managed to make himself/herself noticed (congrats to that) and second your street-art knowledge and awareness is increasing (be proud of it!)
