Upcycling in Woensel West

With Buro Edison we collaborate with other people to make the neighbourhood Woensel West an even nicer place than it already is. Many times it’s a lot of fun. Just like last weekend when we organized Woensel Westival with a bunch of activities. One of the activities we setup ourselves was kind of an experiment but worked out really well! Eindhoven365, the city marketing, blessed us with some leftover clothing from their previous keiblack collection, and together with enthusiastic visitors of the Woensel Westival we started upcycling them. End of the day we had some great results!

Painted boxes

Sometimes i help some artists in linking them to the municipality to participate in the painting of the electrical transformer boxes around the city. Here are some boxes painted by Ralph Roelse and ‘a nameless artist’ thats been very active on the streets lately. It’s a paid commission but with full freedom, so it gives them the opportunity to experiment a bit with new ideas. Big thank you Ruud!

About Windows to the World

Just two years ago i started Windows to the World with my friend Ben Plummer to give sign painters the change to make autonomous work and challenge them along the way. We worked with many talented artists and thanks to the help of many in two years we did two big events in the inner city of Eindhoven, an exhibition at Kelderman en van Noort, an event on Strijp S, an auction to support the local playground during corona, online challenges and collaborations between poets and sign painters. I still love the short docu Eindhoven365 made of us on our first event.

And check the aftermovie of our summer 2021 edition!

ANTIGOON @BUM galerie Ljubljana

Thanks to my friends of the Ljubljana Street Art Festival i had a chance to show the work of one of Eindhovens most interesting artists in Slovenia!

DUM Project Space, Ljubljana / 28 June – 3 July 
Curated by Jasper van Es

Antigoon (Netherlands, 1983) makes machines that apply patterns with markers, spray cans and other materials.The result is inhumanly perfect and geometric. Yet you see the signs of materials that are actually made for humans: dripping paint, pressed crayons and pencilmarks. There is room for imperfection and so the work retains the raw characteristics of graffiti. During the Street Art Festival Antigoon will show different works from his series ‘Mechanical Buffing’ and ‘Ligature’. All works are for sale during opening times.

Windows to the World Jam – Black&Yellow, Black&Yellow!

With my platform Windows to the World I organized the Black&Yellow, Black&Yellow, Black&Yellow jam during the Emoves Festival in june. I think each edition it’s important to experimented and challenge ourselves. This time we also challenged the public, giving them the opportunity to join and tag/write their name in the yellow plexiglass kiosk we build with our friend Dion Visser. And all the invited artists where challenged to only work with black, yellow and a little help of white and orange. Great day! More info here. Thanks Emoves and PluginCity for this collab!!
