BLACK THE MOVIE TIME LAPSE MURAL

Time lapse video of a red carpet mural with my mural collective STUDIO ENTROPICA for BLACK. An epic gangster romance movie by my buddies and movie directors Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah. Went out of my comfort zone to design something that matched the poster art more. The movie is about two rival gangs in Brussels hence the two wild animals against an abstract urban jungle backdrop. Learned a lot from having to pull this off quickly. Great fun.

AB HOSTEL ANTWERP (MURAL)

Making of the mural I did for AB Hostel in Antwerp. It used to be a chocolate factory, so I added some references to that, Belgian foods, the city and harbor of Antwerp and of course travelling. Great fun !
The mural was part of “Discover Antwerp Through Experience”-project where 12 international creatives were led through Antwerp for a week. In the animated gif for a few frames in the Light Blue shirt you can spot Paris-based Reynald Feracci helping me out, who has a fashion label called http://mamama-paris.com/.

ANTWERP (ANIMATION)

Made an animated gif to show my love for my hometown, Antwerp. An inspiring, artistic cosmopolitan city with a rich medieval history and big harbor.
The hand is a reference to the origin folk tale of the city where a Roman soldier called Brabo chopped off the hand of an evil giant that controlled the city and threw it in the river.

CHARLEROI, PAYS NOIR - (ILLUSTRATION POSTER)

For the creative market event "6001 is the new 1060" in Charleroi, Belgium I made this poster.

"Le Pays Noir" is French for "The Black Country" which is a reference to the coal industry that made the region very successful in the 19th and 20th century before its downfall. Nowadays there are almost only abandoned factories. It is now a very poor place and even voted "Ugliest City in the World". A group of artists sees huge potential and organises a creative market once or twice a year. For the second time I took part in it and had a blast. So much energy, so many cool artists and wonderful people.

TV SHOW KINDERGARTEN CLASS MURAL

Helped out my best friend Adil el Arbi. He’s a movie director and took part in a tv show. He had to perform a series of tasks and ask for help through social media. One of these tasks was to revamp a kindergarten classroom in a school in the C-Mine area of Beringen, Genk (Belgium). An old mining village with lots of Turkish, Polish and Italian flavor.

Volunteers transformed the classroom by building new walls, a big mirror and furniture. Pretty crazy. And I did a really fast mural to spice up the place, having slept only 3 hours. There was no time to repaint the green wall, so I tried to make it as fun as possible with doodles, silly characters and a reference to the mines. Met so many nice people. Unexpected adventures like these make life great.

C-Mine, Genk. I love old industrial stuff like this !

SOUL DRAWINGS (LIVE ACT)

For my summer expo at Bar Stulp in Antwerp I experimented with a new special act. LIVE SOUL DRAWINGS, inspired by fortune teller animatronics and automaton machines. I translate your soul and who you are into a drawing coloured with watercolours. Loads of fun and because of the enthusiasm I received I’ll definitely do it again. Got to know so many interesting people and hear so many cool stories, amongst them a girl that does special effects make up in movies.
