NILS & Joachim Collab

Amazing collaborative piece in the Merksem neighborhood of Antwerp, Belgium by Belgian artist Joachim and Richmond (CA) based artist NILS.

The newly formed duo brainstormed for a couple days in order to come up with a concept that would blend their styles and techniques. In the end, they both managed to convey their asthetics and feelings in as equal a way as possible, without diluting the other.
NILS painted his signature black-and-white realistic portrait while Joachim came up with the unique mask painted in his characteristic style.

Who Is Dzia ?

Dzia is a Belgian artist and something of an enigma in the Antwerp area.

“From a young age art has always been a great interest to me. My uncle was an artist and my whole family have always been very creative. This passion carried me through my younger years until I eventually went on to study a masters in fine art at the Royal Academy in Antwerp.

After I graduated I really wanted place my artwork onto walls. I focused on creating a truly unique graphic style, using abstract and geometric lines to implement into animalistic forms. I’ve been painting on walls for around two and half years now.

New ideas come very easily to me, so my work is very spontaneous – I paint quickly and in-situ to make sure the original idea stays true to its form.”
– Dzia

Meet Bisser

The Belgian street artist Bisser creates giant characters in a very unique style. His signature characters seem to be sketched on walls only using a pencils and some crayons and that is possibly the reason why his work is so noteworthy.
Besides the fact that Bisser was born in Leuven and that he has been studying Animation Film in Ghent, there is not much info about him anywhere.
Take a look at some of his murals ↓
