Someone has already heard of The Crystal Ship (website here)? Well, it’s a new 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 many others! 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.
The first mural I’ll show in my new series, 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.
Location: Corner Blauwkasteelstraat / Sint-Catharinaplein
If you plan to visit my city Oostende (or Bruges, a 14 minuts train ride away), let me know in advance and with pleasure I will guide (free bike rent/or walk) you through the streets of my hometown. Those who prefer to discover the artworks on theirselves: I created a Oostende Google Street Art map as well.
Unfortunately, this mural is gone now. Mohamed l’Ghacham created a new finished artwork on this wall for The Crystal Ship edition 2019. Click here to admire his work.
