The first phase of the The Crystal Ship ended at the end of June, where the Belgian artists painted their creations and we can already say that it’s huge success so far. The career of the always smiling local talented artist Mieke Drossaert has been given a huge boost. Her Color full People have generated a lot of good reactions, and in the meantime she has even participated in a Graffiti Jam with her Color Full People in a large(r) format. Splendid!
Over the past week, 3 internationally renowned artists have started their artwork: Mr. Aryz, who made an artwork for The Crystal Ship by night at the end of last year, and the in Argentina born but in Barcelona based (female) artist duo Medianeras.
Vanesa Galdeano and Analí Chanquía, , better known as the artist duo Medianeras Murales started to paint their mural earlier this week, where you can see many of their typical characteristics: androgynous personage, optical illusions and beautiful warm colors/contrasts. I really love the used colors, but I gave it a chance to create a black/white image. My recently purchased drone is a big plus in my bag.
