My dear followers, readers and sympathisants:), have you missed my street art hunting photographs? I have hundreds murals to show, shot on my last two trips to Portugal and Argentina. And to be honest, probably maybe some of you recognize this feeling: too much content and ideas, and i don’t see the beginning of how to create large blogposts/overviews or photo galleries.
But! There is a but! Someone has already heard of “The Crystal Ship”? Wel, it’s an annual contemporary Urban Art Festival held in my hometown Oostende, Belgium. And it’s already the 3th edition this year! Our walls are painted by famous artists like Bosoletti, stencil artist Jaune, Guido Van Helten, OAKOAK, Sebas Velasco and much more! To my opinion, one of the biggest stars of this edition is going to be the Argentian artiste Milu Correch. She is just BRILLIANT! Check out her Instagram and you’ll notice how talented she is.
When is the festival? 7 April 2018.

If you plan to visit my city Oostende(or Bruges, 14 minuts by train), let me know in advance and with pleasure I will guide (free bike rent/or walk) you through our colorful streets. I created a Oostende Street Art map as well. Starting today, I’ll show an mural every day.
The first mural I’ll show, is a creation of two Belgian artists “Smates” and “Locatelli”. The nice story behind this mural: the owner of this house went on a trip to Africa and she specifically asked for a work with animals that occur in Africa.
