Bruegel meet street art

Brussels has chosen, among other things, to celebrate the 450th anniversary of Bruegel's death by dotting the city centre with street art murals inspired by the artist's universe.

It's the Farm Prod collective, along with several other artists, who are presenting their art in the streets of Brussels.

Inspiration: Pieter Bruegel the Elder

“For this vertical and highly visible wall, an image was needed that has a strong impact from a distance and which becomes clearer when you approached it. And wanting to move away from Bruegel's complex compositions, this self-portrait was an obvious choice. I reinterpreted it by mixing clear lines, abstract forms and tribal references. Knowing Bruegel to be a lover of proverbs, I had fun creating an alphabet of local expressions of the Brussels dialect.”
