For a month, two artists and two photographers, including myself, accompanied the 'Brieljante' residents of the residential blocks on Groene Briel.
Some people have lived in these residential blocks for decades, others recently. Everyone now knows the Rabot towers, but the Groene Briel is more isolated from the rest of the neighborhood, and is still unknown to many residents of Ghent. With this project we want to put the residents and their beautiful stories in the spotlight and give them the attention they deserve.
The portraits can be admired in the coming months at various locations near the Groene Briel.
For Drawing Days, a sort of art festival, I made a painting on a few windows in Ghent. Go here for more information and to see the work of all the artists! If you want to know more about the artwork I made, read further.
In March, I went to Berlin for four days with my boyfriend Niels. I had never been to Berlin before, but everybody always said how great, hip and artistic this beautiful city actually is. I had big expectations and the city didn't disappoint me at all. On the contrary, being an aspiring artist myself, I found the city very inspiring and a true hotspot for artists! And here I'm going to tell you why.
I would like to share some interesting art blogs I found while surfing on the internet. Maybe you already know (some of) them, maybe they're new to you. They're all completely different from one another, but to me they're all very inspiring.
On the 31th of january this year, I went to the Brussels Antiques & Fine Arts Fair with my friend Linda who got free tickets. It's quite some time ago, but because it inspired me a lot, I wanted to show some pictures I made during that day. Otherwise they would just end up in a forgotten corner on my computer. They're not that great since I made them with my phone, very sneaky (I wasn't sure if I was allowed to take pictures at all).
On my blog I write about the process of improving my skills, about grabbing every chance I get to become more experienced and about learning from ups and downs. Besides that, I write about everything that inspires me, like film, photography, paintings and psychology.
