Local Street Artists Protest Against Closure of Iconic Site
Brussels Times | Gabriela Galindo
A Belgian street artist is seeking to save part of his artwork from oblivion by taking legal action against the looming demolition of a “unique” street art centre in Brussels. Brussels native Jonathan Pauwels will attempt to block a decision to delete the art contained in the local through emergency legal proceedings, citing imminent damage to his art, his lawyer told La Dernière Heure.
Pauwels, who goes by his artistic name Jaune, is one of the hundreds of street artists to have jointly created a unique street art venue out of the empty location of a former Delhaize supermarket in Ixelles.
