Roa, PichiAvo, Defo, Jen Zie and Martin Ron finished new artworks at the North West Walls project on the site of the Rock Werchter music festival in Belgium. The project was curated by Belgian artist Arne Quinze setting the artists the challenge of painting three giant container towers.
Roa’s intervention includes a total of 13 animals some with chains and others behind bars relating to the theme of captivity.
Pichiavo from Valencia, Spain, have recreated a series of characters from the Trojan War in their typical style mixing figures from Greek mythology and old school graffiti
Argentine street artist Martin Ron has painted a giant 3-D portrait of a forklift truck driver nicknamed ‘Blue’ who was working on the festival site.
Ron’s surreal design also depicts a huge parrot emerging from one of the containers and a monkey nut.
Matt Fox-Tucker of Buenos Aires Street Art organised a trip to Europe for Martin Ron that included a show at Mead Carney Fine Art gallery and murals in London plus participation in the North West Walls street art project.
