The Crystal Ship

The biggest street-art festival of Europe in Belgium. That’s asking for a visit. The last two weeks (28/3-26283035801_60244f9866_z10/4) 25 artists from all over the world painted their art on more than 20 locations through the streets of Ostend.  From small figures to enormous paintings on the empty walls of the city. The crystal ship wants you to “follow the waves”. The citizens of Ostend could also propose there own wall for a painting (which they did). It’s great to see free great art making the streets livelier!  You can pickup a plan at the tourism office in Ostend (Monacoplein 2-9) (or have a look at the official site of the crystal ship) and bike or walk the route that takes you to every corner of the city. The paintings will be there at least for the next two years (in two years there will be a next festival) and the street art walls will be part of a walk and bike trail (there is also an app in the making) .
