Wallin’ Wall: Ajuinlei
In reference to our project with the poetry wall, we opened the wall at the Ajuinlei in Ghent as a stage for talent.
With its central location, the wall gets great views. Each month we invite artists to exhibit their skills in this visible place. From emerging artists to established names, everyone is welcome to apply and expose their own style and vision in the public space.
We already received the following artists on the wall: Solo Cink, Resto, Aphex, Toys, Samor, Xuas, Siger, Hipsterskulls, Digi5 and Maris.
This skilled calligraffiti artist from Brussels reinterprets Gothic letters and transforms them into the building blocks of geometric and colourful works, which almost look like mandalas. Black, white and gold are colours that regularly recur in his work and contribute to the mystical atmosphere. The artist discovered calligraphy during his travels through Asia, after which he completely shaped this style of writing. Oriental cultures are a great source of inspiration for him. Anyone who takes the time can even find the 'Ohm' symbol and other references to spiritual wisdom in his murals.
Resto (1961) palmed our country with a storm of gigantic, loving, warped, modern and mythical wonder. With vivid colors he dances through styles. He portrays giants and insane living machines, always with a wink and a comic twist. They have become infamous for their sheer size and epic nature.
Xuas's paintings seem to come from a fantasy world. This experienced graffiti artist is known for his enchanting use of colour and imaginative scenes that immediately make you dream. Both on small and large surfaces his colourful style comes into its own.
