As part of its Street Art trail, the City of Brussels has inaugurated 13 miniature images from the Spanish artist Isaac Cordal. These statues are decorating different facades in the city centre around the Bourse.
In the framework of the Détours Festival, Isaac Cordal was invited by the City of Brussels to display his work on the facade of the Bourse and the Café of the Ancienne Belgique. This artist from Galicia became famous thanks to his Cement Eclipses project, in which miniature characters dressed in gray costumes and made of cement are installed in unusual urban spaces. These scenes depict the routine of contemporary society and the loneliness and isolation of modern times.

Specially to Yoko, Milan, Emmanuel, Gauthier, Xavier and Bernardo. Video by Ciclope //@bernardocamisao and Xavier Solano.
