Today is day 3 attending The Crystal Ship Festival. For the fourth time in a row, The Crystal Ship conquers Ostend together with world-famous artists. With the theme The Dictatorship of Art in mind, they make gigantic murals and fantastic art installations during the Easter holidays. .
This year’s roster features international artists: Case Maclaim (DE) – Crystal Wagner (USA) – David Walker (UK) – Escif (ES) – Helen Bur (UK) – Jaune (BE) – Leon Keer (NL) – Lonac (HR) – Marina Capdevila (ES) – Miss Van (FR) – Mohamed l’Ghacham (ES) – Paola Delfin (MX) – Tom Herck (BE) – Wasted Rita (PT)
The Crystal Ship’s collection already includes more than 50 permanent artworks and this year the Festival will add ten new murals (the highest is 40 meters!), two gigantic sculptures, a series of smaller interventions, three school projects and an artist in residence that will use the city as her playground (our rebellious Wasted Rita takes on that role!). Make sure to join today at Monacoplein, where the new works will be presented to the public!
