Snowy R.U.A. Happy 2010 – Part 1

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Although R.U.A. festival has passed for the Brazilian writers who were in Rotterdam this summer, for Rotterdam it is far from over!

The art remains standing strong, in all types of weather and last week it has been snowing like crazy in Holland.

Our one and only, hardcore photographer Evert Eijkelenboom regularly makes his trip around town, to shoot some new images…

These ones we couldn’t keep for ourselves!!

We would like to use this opportunity to wish you all a fantastic and artistic 2010!

Enjoy!

Yes…yes!! We are still alive…after a few computer crashes later…some lost images and some survival acts…a few weeks and many events later, we couldn’t let you wait any longer…what happened to all the walls in Rotterdam?

First of all we would like to show you a few different perspectives of Onio’s last wall…

Gais’ wall at the NAi had great attention during De Wereld van de Witte de With. The light was beautiful and it was amazing to have it as a decoration for the festival. The good news afterwards was that the NAi wants to keep the painting one more month again!! Let’s see how it will work next month!

Horoiwa still rockin’ in the Dutch!!

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

Although he has left this monday, Horoiwa keeps on going as if he is still around. The rainy weather is playing with the colours, which makes the wall everyday a little different. And national newspapers still write about him! We will not easily forget him…!

Onio…again, this time with OX-Alien

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

When you less expect it, Onio appears with his “ritimo frenético”. He prepares his cherry picker as if e is driving a zero km BMW, jumps a few times around, runs in and out the office with some buckets, leaves his bike open with danger to get robbed, runs in and out again…goes a few times up and down in the machine and suddenly there is a new painting on a wall…!! Onio, how do you do that? This time he invited his new friend OX-Alien from Lastplak. Great job Onio, and let us know if you arrived well back in Brasilia!

Aaah, né não…Dalata!!

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

It is always surprising what to expect when passing by at Dalatas wall. In the mornings he is never there. He starts in the late afternoon and prefers to paint at night. In Holland, there’s a law that you can’t make “noise” after 22hs. so Dalata had to adapt himself to the daylight. His sunglasses are permanently stuck on his face to create a certain superficial darkness. This time we where lucky and found him in higher atmospheres…

In the early days in Holland, there was another rule, which had to do with tax. Landowners only had to pay tax for the square meeters in the ground, not in the air…that’s why many buildings in Holland are very thin, but very high….

Ramon…finally painting…?

Monday, August 17th, 2009

Yes!!

Ramon started! The last two days he painted everything in white (and greenish?) latex…! Yesterday was somewhat of a difficult day to do anything due to the Bavaria City Racing that took over the place. Cars all over. It was impossible to even cross the street without getting “atropelado” by a formula 1 car, or by 20.000 visitors walking or cycling by.

New day…today…lets see what he is going to bring!

And Onio…what is happening with Onio?

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

Onio…we don’t get it.
What is happening here?
We are looking forward to see the result…!!

What...is that...?

Horoiwa is working steadily towards the end of his huge painting. Everyday he starts early and works in a constant rythm, sometimes taking a short break, looking from a distance…sometimes just sitting in his cherry picker, observing it all from a higher prespective…
