Street Art has conquered Flanders
On the walls, in the streets and on monuments, Street Art, developed in a multitude of forms, has now conquered the whole world and colours the largest cities.
Flanders has also been affected by this artistic wave and hosts some very beautiful urban artworks.
To name just a few, in Ostend, for example, you can admire more than 70 works of art created by the crew of The Crystal Ship, which drops anchor in the city every year and is made up of artists from all over the world. In Antwerp, too, you can discover numerous works of art from the train between Antwerp-Berchem and Antwerp Central stations, or again in the street. The city of Hasselt also offers a walking or cycling route that stretches along the length of more than 80 facades with impressive murals. As part of the Mechelen Wall project, artist Gijs Vanhee invited ten artists to make their mark on the walls of Mechelen's city centre where you can now, during a stroll, admire their 10 magnificent murals. And finally, if you go to Ghent, don't forget to pass by the famous Graffiti Alley and walk around the city to admire the works of many world-renowned artists such as ROA or even Bué The Warrior.
