CONVERSE BLOCK PARTY MURAL 1 by laresistance CONVERSE BLOCK PARTY MURAL 1 by laresistance
I did a color-by-numbers-mural for Converse Block Party in Antwerp last week ( partly organized by Vice Magazine ). It was a fantastic day with fantastic people and I thank everyone who came by to paint. Especially the kids who made the piece a little bit more psychedelic in the end.

director and friend Kris Van den Bulck made a fun TIME LAPSE VIDEO. check it out here:

my first design was a lot bigger so I only used 1/3d of the characters here. included are: a gumball astronaut, a rock and roll tree, an urban tucan, a three-breasted mermaid, conan the ice cream barbarian, a mexican vomiting wrestler, a transsexual marge simpson, a hot dog lady, a telephone, an icecream-loving basketball-playing unicorn and a melty icecream-man.

The blue haired guys getting a little to touchy feely with the burger dude and I don't trust the astronaut he's defiantly reaching for something .cant say I blame the unicorn though
Great interaction with your characters mr Jango .

It's an interesting idea to let the viewers of your artwork paint :). The result looks like a freaky child's dream. With ladder the white space in the top would be colorful too :D.

That's so cool man! So's the video. Totally awesome. Did you plan it out before hand and then work direct onto the boards or did you draw on the wall first or what? I would love to do that somehow some day, though I'm sure I'd make a massive pig's ear of it.

Also, how was SF??

ha, thx mate ! I drew like a big bunch of characters on small papers that I could play with and let them interact. they are on the left in the video and I keep walking back to look at them. but the whole thing is more or less improvised that way. directly black paint on the board. problem was it all turned out bigger than expected so I only used 1/3d of my characters. I really wanna do more of this stuff and get better at it. it's very different to work big size. but you could totally pull that off man, try it some time, you would kick ass for sure. we should maybe do a collab on that once :). and timelapse videos are always fun :). but I'm doing another and bigger mural for converse from London again tomorrow in another city in Belgium. incredible deadline madness, this one is more or less with a design, but it's not easy due to the wallspace, creative limitations and constant feedback. and I'm not even talking about the height I'm gonna be working at and weather. oh boy. is gonna be hard, but great too I think. there's a film crew from London coming over tomorrow. I feel like a celeb now, haha :D

and SF is coming up ! we're leaving 1st of september and I can't believe we're actually going. I'm so looking forward to it, you have no idea !
I should really mail you again before our comment section runs out of hand :). how's things up there ? I've been talking to the people of converse from London about you. you're latest works are all so much awesome man, I should really catch up

ja, ik ga er deze week nog één doen voor Converse in Gent. Enorm enorm leuk om te doen. ik had er nooit aan gedacht vroeger, maar ik wil veel meer muurschilderingen maken nu. het is een goeie afwisseling tussen aan een tafeltje zitten tekenen :)

so much love for this dude!!! I've been commissioned to do a music themed mural in a few months, this is very inspirational. What sort of paint/ink did you use?

laresistance Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011
aww thanks, man ! I'm doing another mural for converse this week. bigger and higher. insane deadline ! but looking forward to it.

music themed mural sounds great ! so much you can do with that. I used acrylic paint. for indoors I think that's the best. and with this piece I discovered fluorescent colors! oh man, I'm addicted to it now :). the flashiness is awesome. I always find it difficult to calculate how much paint I will need, but I'm getting better at it

Ah wicked! Yeah it'll be an indoor piece, so I'll take your advice with the acrylic. Fluorescent paint sounds awesome! I'll be checking that out too. Thanks bro :)
