The Belgian artists was commissioned by De Invasie and STUK as part of a larger exhibition on sustainable living. This super green street art is made by cleaning rather than adding on.
A wall along a staircase leading into the centre was covered with moss and Strook used it as the backdrop for his latest work. Using a hand-held pressure washer, he etched his designs into the moss and algae. With this is graphic art via cleaning, no chemicals, paint or cleaning agents were used at all.
“More and more, we are dictated by technology. That intrigues me. And so do the cities we live in. That’s why I populate my drawings with humanoids – robots with a human shape – and cyborgs – physical merges of man and machine.”
