The Sint-Pieters Nieuwstraat is a very busy street where many people pass by, but it is also a residential street. The nocturnal passage of some students regularly disrupted the local night's rest.
That's why the City of Ghent started a project to give part of Sint-Pieters Nieuwstraat, from De Brug to Sint-Pietersplein, more the feeling of a residential street.
In collaboration with Wallin', 4 graffiti artists from Ghent were chosen, who created 5 works in the street. The City of Ghent thus kills two birds with one stone: the ostentatious tags have disappeared and the homely themes and nature motifs remind passers-by that this is a residential street. Kitsune Jolene made two works, Cee Pil, Lobster Robin and A Squid Called Sebastian each (photos in order).
In the aftermovie below, we portrayed the project beautifully for you. This was made by Ahmet Eroglu.
