Street Artist Pol Cosmo's Insects are taking over the streets
Last month saw us here at Hookedblog visit the Belgian coastal town of Oostende for the first edition of The Crystal Ship festival (Previously on Hookedblog). Alongside the invited international artists who created murals across the city the festival included a number of local Belgian artists in the program. It's always great to travel to new places and discover the works of artists we were not previously aware of. Two new discoveries while in Oostende was the work of stencil artist Jaune (Previously on Hookedblog) and PolCosmo.
We have already featured stencil artist Jaune whose elaborate multi layer stencil work for the festival was a highlight for us. The other Belgian artist installing work at street level was PolCosmo who installed a large number of issue ups across the city. The Gent based street artists hand painted creepy crawly creatures and insects descended upon the city taking us residence and multiplying across the cities walls. We briefly caught up with PolCosmo on our travels around Oostende while he was busy with brush and paste installing some new bugs. Have a look at some of these colourful creatures we discovered below.
