Hello my dear readers:)! Today is the kickoff of the third edition of the street art festival ‘The Crystal Ship” in Oostende and you can imagine,  I am really looking forward to the latest creations:). As I am a bit busy today, I have planned tomorrow a “street art hunting bike ride” through my beloved hometown Oostende.

Has someone already heard of Guido Van Helten? Van Helten, an Australian painter known for transforming silos into photorealistic artworks, performed in the first edition (2016) of The Crystal Ship. Guido Van Helten his artwork is based on a photograph that he took of the former fisherman Norbert Desmit, and can be found in the middle of the harbor district, pretty close to another mural painted by Phlegm (Click here).

  1. Oh woow! I love this one. And I love the name Chrystal Ship for this event. As you might know, it’s The Doors song. 🙂

    The crystal ship is being filled
    A thousand girls, a thousand thrills
    A million ways to spend your time
    When we get back, I’ll drop a line ♫♪
