In Belgium I met with French stencil artist Blouh to realise our first collaboration. Blouh took me painting in an abandoned factory which is has been his playground for a few months. The building is huge and has so much potential ; we chose to paint on a spot that was lighten up by natural ‘spotlight’.
The theme of our artwork is ‘Riot’ and it depicts a giant young man wearing hoodie and bandana, spraying a policeman reduced to the size of an insect and trying to protect himself with his shield. We moved objects such as petrol cans and extinguishers in front of the piece to create an installation. The final step was to set them on fire to create the ultimate riot atmosphere.
