Brussels’ latest mural unveiled for returning of Balkan Trafik
The Bulgarian artist Bozko was invited to create a mural at the Quais quarter, on the occasion of the 2018 Balkan Trafik Festival and in collaboration with the City of Brussels. The street art wall at the Quai au Bois de Construction 7 was inaugurated on Wednesday 18 April 2018.
For more than 10 years, Balkan Trafik has put Balkan culture on the map in Brussels. Each year, the emphasis is placed on a specific art form. This 12th edition focuses on street art during an ‘Urban Chapter’ in collaboration with Lezarts Urbains.
For this occasion, the City of Brussels has proposed inviting an artist from the Balkans to create a mural on a facade of the city as part of the Street Art Trail. The Bulgarian artist Bozko was chosen for this. He is best known for his enormous works of art and his world filled with imagined, strange but cute characters. The street art wall was realized on the facade of a private home. Last year, the owners presented themselves as candidates after the City’s appeal to owners to include their facade(s) in the Street Art Trail.
