The Street Art That Inhabits an Abandoned Village in Belgium

By - Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Right before the millenium, the Village of Doel in Belgium was abandoned to make way for expansion plans for the port of Antwerp. The government had a nature compensation law that required land to be set aside for nature to take back to offset the new construction. Indeed “nature” did come back in. As the locals left, artists started coming to Doel to use the village as their canvas and work completely unrestricted. Now the village has turned into an art installation or gallery of sorts and there are lots of artwork that are monumental in size. Take a tour of the town with the series of photographs below. {pagebreak} Source: Weird Fiction Review
