New Street Art Piece by Anthea Missy 2016-08-25

New Street Art Piece by Anthea Missy

More than 100 litres of paint have flooded over the walls boarding the canal during cool nights and sunny days of August. Sunny, is precisely the topic of the panoramic mural of 315m2 designed by visual artist Anthea Missy and set to be positive as a remedy to dark concrete gloom. From the top of her heels, the artist perched on scaffold and floating dock has taken possession of the space to leave a spark of light in her wake (Laeken – in front of the “Work Monument”).

Kanal Karma, name of the picture, is an invitation to travel and join dreamy lands for all ages. The dynamics of bold curves is embraced by the sweetness of fairy tale’s characters such as dragon and mermaid, a reminder of the power of water as fuel for life. At the centre, a cat and a girl are casually sipping a cocktail despite being carried away by the fast and uncontrollable pace of life. That contrast between tenderness and sharpness in Anthea Missy’s minimal style is eye-catching, blending energy and freshness. The making of the mural is supported by Brussels Port, Loxam Construction, Mattelart, Au Bord de L’Eau and online Crowdfunding.

The picture, just like the adventurous artist will travel and will be exhibited under a miniature size of 3m2 during an art competition – Open Graffiti France Belgium – set to happen between Paris and Brussels from October 2016 to January 2017 and endorsed by Jean Paul Gaultier et Agnès B.
