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!

NRC HANDELSBLAD…In the news!!

Ramon quebrando tuuuudooooo!!

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

No words can express the extraordinary colour explosion and velocity in which Ramon Martins is paintig his wall. If you’d go on a ride with Ramon in his cherry picker, you’d feel as if you’re participating in a video game. He’s managing his machine playing with the buttons flying up and down like crazy…Ramon is definately not the one who takes weeks before he dares to go to the top! (Yusk…!?) Whoever is afraid of hights should not go with him. The luxury though – to be able to observe his work from close – is worth everything!

Yusk and Horoiwa left the scenery now…It is very strange to slowly see everybody finishing his wall and going his way after being like a family for such long time…
There are always crazy things happening and it is always a lot of fun to see how everybody has to struggle to really reach the end…
Because these pictures illustrate well…that is was a little hard for Yusk to finish…there was a tree in the way…and we had to find a way to get it out of the way without violating dutch laws…

Is Yusk really painting?

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

The other day I was making one of my rounds visiting all the walls and when I arrived at Yusks wall…I saw Stile painting. Both where having lots of fun tagging around a bit…

working hard....

Yusk and Stile

Yesterday I did that same kind of round…and found Yusk a little shocked and with his face almost green at the foot of the cherry picker looking up as if something horrible happened to his work. I thought someone had painted over, or something must have been wrong with the machine…when I noticed that someone else was painting his wall…
Did I actually catch Yusk at a wrong moment…does Yusk actually paint his own art? What is going on here? Where we all believing that we where looking at a real Yusk, and now…in the end we have to discover that it’s not true? Who is that misterious artist that isn’t afraid of hights? And who did finish Yusks wall…?

Geen gekkigheid, maar gekkenwerk

Monday, August 10th, 2009

Yusk can’t reach the limit with his cherry picker…the building is too high…!! Gekkenwerk. Testing the limit of the machine, it seems it can drop backwards any moment very scary! But he doesn’t desist and works very fast to catch up with time…

Yusk and his “gekkigheid”!

Friday, August 7th, 2009

Finally we can proudly announce that yet another wall can be added to the list that is slowly growing!! This time it is Yusks time!

Yusk was very anxious to start but when he finally got the cherry picker of the right hight (27meter!!) it was a little scary in the beginning.

Horoiwa, already experienced in driving the machine is teaching every single member of the team.

And then…the black latex…lots of black latex…27 degrees Dutch sunshine and black, lot of black latex…

Chilling and gambling

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Finally the boys got to eat feijão again and after that it was time for a laid back relaxing time at the new space designed to meet professional and recreational needs. Actually, on this day we did more than relaxing and talking about art. Heavy drinking, smoking and major gambling activities went on through out the night. Even though a lot of people lost money, Yusk took everybody’s lunch money, and at the end there was an overall sense of being part of something special, or maybe it was just the booze talking.
