These are obviously not all the murals, I will post all them later on my face book page “Saved from oblivion”

There used to be patients sleeping in a hospital bed in the “Kippendorpvest” (Chicken Village Vest) in Antwerp , but Xior transformed the old ARPA clinic into a dorm. The student housing finds that young people deserve more than a few white walls and thus invited six Belgian graffiti artists to perk up the building. Artists are: Steve Locatelli , Bue The Warrior , A Squid Called Sebastian , Klaas Van Der Linden , Matthew Dawn and Bart Smates .

The six men get one week time to provide the Eight floors with their art . “ Every artist departed from his own creativity , ” says graffiti artist Matthew Dawn , coordinating the project , “ but we also took into account the wishes of the students on each floor . ” Himself ,Matthew, is pretty excited about the project and he sees it as an image boost for graffiti art . “ It feels more like a vacation than a work assignment ,” he laughs. “ We live here for a whole week and we are doing almost nothing but graffiti spraying. Super ! ”
