Around Belgian Pride, as of May 1, a permanent forty meters long mural is unveiled, with works by the renowned artists Ralf König and Fotini Tikkou.
It is a sad reality in Belgium that most of the violent acts against homosexuals are committed on the street, the Regenbooghuis Brussel, organizer of “Out in the Street - Street Art” reports. With the street art project on the Kolenmarkt, where a lot of gay establishments can be found, the public space is symbolically reconquered by gays.
Ralf König is a German cartoonist. He has an international reputation when it comes to gay comics, and his work has been published in seventeen countries, including The Netherlands and Belgium. At “Street Art,” a seven meter long mural with his work will be unveiled that has been especially made for this art event.
Fotini Tikkou is a Greek portrait artist. She was the first to put portraits of homosexuals on the walls in Brussels. “Tikkou now shows a series of eleven portraits that will leave no pedestrian in Brussels unmoved,” the Street Art organization promises.
