I am writing this blog post from Antwerp in Belgium, where I am attending a Summer School in Visualising Urban Culture. Before I left Sydney I did a quick scout around some local streets, to catch up on any pavement graffiti I might have missed.
I found this body outline in a back street of Camperdown. A number of graffiti artists have utilized the walls of this closed-down factory buildingÂ (now being renovated, presumably into desirable inner-city apartments). I don’t know why one of them turned theirÂ attention to the asphalt, but I like this chunky body on the road. It exemplifies my arrival in Antwerp. I hit the ground running and have been flat out ever since.
