    Silent Speech

    Bloemenkenswijk , 9000 Gent Leen Van Tichelen

    Ghent visual artist Leen Van Tichelen has created the work of art Silent Speech together with the inhabitants of the Bloemekenswijk neighbourhood. It consists of imposing canvases printed with patterns and images designed by local residents. The stories of this neighbourhood are thus an integral part of the artwork.
    Afterwards, the artist will make curtains and cushions from the canvases and exhibit them in the display windows of Kioskiosk.

    Eyes B

    kleinvleeshuissteeg , 9000 Gent Eyes B

    Eyes-B, a painter and graffiti artist based in Brussels, has been drawing since he can remember. He finds his inspiration in the digital arts, design and the macro use of organic elements. He has gradually developed his technique by using more of a “freestyle” approach—improvisation and spontaneity guide his work.

    Foxow

    prinsenhof , 9000 Gent Cee Pil

    Cee Pil's work is all about the contrast between nature and culture, a bewildering view on nature and how men and nature live together. Instead of presenting beautiful pictures he wants to give his audience food for thought. His work has a certain surrealistic touch. He wants to show a calm and harmonious picture with an unpleasant connotation.

    SMOK

    Neuseplein , 9000 Gent Smok

    Three local service centres, De Horizon, De Boei and De Thuishaven, are housed in an apartment block. As a result, their offices are little visible and people often pass by without noticing them. Older local residents sometimes do not even know that they can go there for services and activities.
    Instead of working with classic façade banners with photographs, the Elderly Care Department of the City of Ghent opted for murals. The three centres have large blind side walls that are ideal for this purpose.

    In the run-up to the third SORRY, NOT SORRY festival, a mini arts route has been created in and around the Voormuide and Muidepoort streets. Local residents were given the opportunity to put their façade at the disposal of an artist. Various artists have installed small works of art at different locations in the neighbourhood.

    Kitsune

    Pekelharing , 9000 Gent Kitsune

    The owners of this building wished to draw positive attention to the neighbourhood. They entrusted artist Kitsune with the design of a mural that would be visible from the street despite the dense urban development.
    The budget to pay for the artist’s work hours was collected via crowdfunding. All other costs (scaffolding, paint, etc.) were paid by the owners.
