In May, Brussels is the place to be for a unique street art festival! Strokar, the organization that aims at stimulating and developing street art, will be organizing the second edition of the expo Living in the positive. There will also be 3 new frescoes in the city as well as an interesting artists’ parcours in the Dansaert neighborhood.
In May 2016, a first expo was held at the Vanderborght building, with some 120 graffiti artists from all over the world entering into dialogue of inspiring themselves on a selection of 300 pictures taken by photographer-reporter Fred Atax during his numerous travels around the globe. From 17 to 26 May, Living in the positive invites 50 artists (a.o. the renowned Denis Meyers, Kashink and FARM PROD collective) to come together and create new artworks and collaborations.

But there’s more to come! Strokar organizes an artists’ parcours in the trendy Dansaert neigborhood. In about 30 shop windows, you’ll be able to see works of artists from the expo. And in the coming weeks, 3 monumental wall paintings will appear in the city center, created by female street artists.
Right before the start of the festival, end of April, Strokar will open its very own gallery AllRighT. From 1 June onwards COPE2, the alter ego the American graffiti artist Fernando Carlo,will be having his first solo exposition in the brand new gallery.
In autumn, the expo Living in the positive will present the many talented Belgian artists to the French public in the Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles in Paris!
