As is sometimes the case when we find ourselves in far flung countries attending street art and mural festival despite our best efforts and planning we are often leaving bags packed on our our way back to London before seeing all the completed works.


We will often try and extend our stay a day extra when we travel to street art festivals allowing for un-predictable weather which on occasion delay the work being completed or just sometimes it’s the sheer scale of the wall that the artist is working on can sometimes take several days to complete.

Hell'O Collective

One such gigantic wall here in Ostend, Belgium featured the work of two Belgian artist from Brussels, Hell’O Collective. The vibrant mural was painted as part of a previous edition of the annual street and contemporary art festival The Crystal Ship which is now in it’s third year.

We caught up one of the Belgian duo back when they were painting the mural work for the festival and managed to photograph one of the collective at work over a number of days we spent in Ostend. But this was one of the festival walls we never got to shoot the finished mural due to sheer scale of the piece they were working on, which stretched across a number of large walls. The work in progress photos of the artist have sat on our computer for the last year waiting to be shared online.

Now back in sunny Ostend for this years Crystal Ship festival we made sure to go have a look at the completed work from Hell’O Collective and of course to get that important completed shot of the finished work. So here you go our selection of images of Hell’O Collective at work only a year late but as the wall is still running in Ostend and is part of the festivals walking tour program we thought it still made sense to share the images.
