Fissures and flaws. Surface cracks and deep scars. Tangible pangs: Our world is riddled with them. It hints at breaking, splitting, snapping, but this giant rock never caves to its torment. This is an homage to our home and the infinite stone it’s yielded us. I’ve photographed these so-called defects all over the world, then magnified and painted them somewhere else on the planet. This is a form of gratitude, announcing there’s glory in imperfection, triumph in pain and echoed connections everywhere. This wall was a demand of King Philippe in collaboration with @bozarbrussels. They gave me total artistic freedom, as it should be. The 6th wall in the series is named “HUMAIN”. It’s 800m2 (40m-20m) The hand symbolizes creation, connection, contact and unity. Human contact implies responsibility. We are responsible for each other, especially now. This wall symbolizes our individual but also our historical responsibility. The crack on this wall was shot on a statue of king Leopold II. The copper background refers to the resource that Belgium was mining heavily during the colonisation. The hand explicitly refers to the inhumane practice of Belgian officials cutting civilians hands off whenever they resisted working in the camps. Besides many other atrocities that went on numbers show that approximately 18 million people were killed during the occupation, many millions had their hands chopped off. It is a proper time to acknowledge the inhumain practices and horrific past and to consider a way of reparation for the inconceivable amount of pain and trauma caused by our nation. The time to speak and listen to each other is NOW. Let’s unite and avoid repeating the same neglectful and inhumane practices of the past. Each one teach one🍀 My gratitude goes out to @nansschonkeren ✨ without you none of this would have happened. Endless respect and love. Also thanks to @bozarbrussels for making it happen with us. And last but not least thanks to the city of Antwerp for allowing this symbol of unity to grace our city. @stad_antwerpen #bozart #antwerp #reparation #leopold2 #colonisation #unity #corona #love #art # graffiti #amok Pics by @filipvanroe and myself

This is a form of gratitude, announcing there’s glory in imperfection, triumph in pain and echoed connections everywhere. The sixth wall in the series is called “No pressure, no diamonds” Last months the world and people went crazy. So it was time for an antidote. A colourful and vibrant expression of a desire for life. No matter the weather it’s up to us to learn and dance in the rain. This wall is also an hommage to the Hip-Hop culture, a culture risen out of pressure just like jazz and blues….. those artforms are not just genres….. they are socio-hystorical movements that document the lives of countless people in any kind of struglle… they are also a manifestation of commitment, discipline and creativity. With this wall @digitaldoes and myself wanted to translate that energy and vibrance into our painting. We wanted to make something fresh. get fresh The term "fresh" as it is used here originates from the early 1980's Hip-Hop/Breakdance/graffiti culture. For lack of better words it means "awe inspiringly original". To, "get fresh" or "getfresh," is the act of doing something fresh, something never done before and done in a way that radiates energy and life. The crack in the wall was photographed in the street where @jr and myself made a mural in Paris. Every new place where I paint gives me a new present, as if I’m granted unepxected gifts permanently to keep sharing this energy. Cracks and scars everywhere. Beauty to share anywhere. Let’s dance in the rain. Thanks again to @nansschonkeren for you relentless support and thanks to @digitaldoes for your amazingly powerful contribution to the project. And thanks to @streetartantwerp for all your assistance and help. We ll be back soon! Keep dancing #graffiti #antwerp #hiphop #culture #history

‘If it is true That God is God And true That the Human is Human We still have hope That God as a Human Is still amongst Humans And each day Humans become Gods again’ By Julien Schoenaerts painted this wall in the prison of Oudenaarde in Belgium. Did it to empower the mission of Hans Claus, the prison warden, who for decades has been fighting to humanize conditions for long term inmates. Check his program called “rescaled”. www.rescaled.org The crack painted on this wall was photographed in ROME…. the very start of what we call our civilization….. One love again to @nansschonkeren for all support.

Times are hard…. fear in the hearts of people everywhere. We all need each other. Let’s contribute to each other’s wellbeing instead of being played out by powers that want to polarize. THE TIME IS NOW. Only we can do it as a unity. Believe and achieve. Adama Traoré x George Floyd — Tribute by the students of @ecolekourtrajme @ladjly — « On a foreground bearing the marks on the floor of the place where Georges Floyd died in Minneapolis painted by the artist @__zenith______ , the eye of Adam Traoré and the eye of George Floyd are looking at the horizon. Things are different in France and in the US : violence, police, justice, prisons, etc. But in France, like in the US and in many other countries, ethnical minorities are too often victims of racism and discriminations. Together, we must change that. » Pasting Paris 10, at 15 rue Jan Karski additional photos by @baptistelignel @aguirre_schwarz @richardaujard Thanks to @JR and his amazing team for the warmth, hospitality and commitment. Real SOULDIERS…… One love ❤️

The third wall in the series represents the light in the darkness, the transformation of pain into power and the mirroring nature of opposites. It was a pleasure and an honour to work with the OG and style legend from the legendary BCP crew from Brussels @defomanone . Integrity, loyalty, commitment and passion is what you embody. Always feel blessed to work with people who walk the walk. Thanks to number one warrior @nansschonkeren for your everlasting work and support. Thanks to @streetartantwerp for assistance. One love ❤️ on to the next 🍀 most pics by @filipvanroe

Corona has rocked our core and proven our frailty again….death is all around…. hence the skull you can detect through the cracks. It’s a colorful one though…. representing the hope that the suffered losses inspire us to reflect on how we lived and how to grow from this. One love to all the health workers around the world putting their life on the line to save others. The green on the wall is for you, it symbolises your work garment. Thanks to warrior number 1 @nansschonkeren for your endless support and dedication and fighting spirit.💫🍀❤️ Thanks to @streetartantwerp for your assistance and commitment. And super thanks to partner in crime @locatellisteve Thanks to @filipvanroe and @zakabeyahya for the great pics 💫
