Graphic Capital

City trippers, you have all sorts of them. The greater part takes three days to rush from one landmark to another monument just to score a facebook selfie. Or you're like us: you just walk around and hope to bump into something great, undiscovered and local! Therefore we are strong believers of observing graphic statements in the street. This can go from weathered painted-on commercials to statement-making street-art. Coincidentally we received two projects who take place in our capital and deal with these elements.

The first project " Brussels Type " is a new photography book in which designer Stan Van Steendam capture a series of over 80 street typography photos. His obsession for street typography results into an archive-like document that will survive the hands of time, unlike the pictured subjects. Our advice? If you plan a citytrip to Brussels in the near future, then order this book and use it as a city-guide! It won't only lead you to tourist-free neighbourhoods but it will also give you a preview of the neighbourhood's atmosphere and feeling. Enjoy our small selection!

We move on with the "Hollywood" project of artists Grégory Decock and Pierre De Belgique (what's in a name). You may know Grégory as the guy behind the cowboy stop-signs, but this time he decided to go bigger and bolder! Together with Pierre he tagged a building with the famous Hollywood letters. Quite absurd if you know that the building houses social apartments and is situated in one of the oldest and most authentic neighbourhoods of Brussels. Part of the project was the participation of the "facebook face selfie" tourist. As the rooftop of the building is perfectly visible from the panoramic Poelaert place, many pictures of the Hollywood signs got uploaded and tagged on sites such as Photobucket and Flickr. Or how street art can become monumental!
