Welcome to street art in Antwerp. Enjoy!
Now, people in Belgium do not just read Tin Tin.
Les Aventures De Neron et C / LES NEROTIQUES
They are the heros from the 19th-century novel A Dog of Flanders by Marie Louise de la Ramée, under the synonym of Ouida. It tells the story of an orphan boy who grows up with his grandpa and finds a dog nearly beaten to death.
(This is the super short version, spoiler alert.)
After the dog recovers, they become best friends. In the church of Antwerp he wants to see the art work of Rubens and both of them are found frozen the next day. Rumors go, this story is much more famous in Japan than in Belgium.
While it is really hard to find street art in some cities, in Andwerp all you need to do is look. Unfortunately, a lot of the city has been cleaned up a few years ago but you will still find older street art pieces all over the city.
Street Art in Antwerp – a Lane Way
The thing with alleys is, that you usually cannot take a decent photo there …
There is so much street art in Antwerp that you will find an entire Facebook page dedicated to it. Antwerp may be the hidden street art capital of Belgium (and we didn’t even make it to the hip places.)
I really hope you liked the street art from Antwerp! More pictures from our trip to Belgium coming soon …
