Fresco – Avenue de la Cité Modèle, 1020 Brussels (Laeken).
American artist Momo has been invited by the All About Things collective to create a special work on the esplanade of the Cité Modèle in Laeken, opposite the library. The artist’s vibrant graphic world will cover the ground, transforming the square into a colourful meeting place.
The artist will create the fresco between the 27th September and the 5th October.
The inauguration will be held at 3.30pm on 5th October 2023 at Avenue de la Cité Modèle, 1020 Brussels (Laeken).
Momo is an American artist who began his experimental outdoor work at the end of the 90s, always in the public space using home-made tools. For over 10 years, Momo has been working with great freedom, developing his own individual technique. His work is inspired by collage, computer coding and seriality: an abstract, dense and colourful language.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of PARCOURS Street Art, the City of Brussels has commissioned four artistic projects from the Belgian curatorial collective All About Things. Bjorn Van Poucke and Thierry Dubois are the brains behind All About Things. Together, they organise and curate cultural projects for local government. The duo matches talented artists with diverse urban territories. Thanks to the participation of local residents, All About Things develops artistic projects that strengthen communities and contribute to the quality of everyday life for everyone. The collective is also behind The Crystal Ship street art festival in Ostend.
