Chalk drawings on public walls, private homes and interiors (with publication)

Invited by S.M.A.K., the contemporary art museum in Ghent, I have been working in the working class neighbourhood Moscou (Gent Ledeberg) for several years, drawing throughout the area with blackboard chalk. I began drawing on industrial buildings and walls, without asking permission beforehand. To the people in Moscou I explained that chalk is an easily erasable material that washes away after it has been raining. Slowly, I became a known face in the area and succeeded in shifting the work to the facades and interiors of private homes.
