Graffiti enhancement in Ghent

ACTLD was commissioned by SIEN, the museum scenography agency, to team up with Steve Locatelli, the graffiti artist, and create a made to measure art installation for the underground passage in the City of Ghent. The passage was closed for many years and for the occasion of re-opening it for the public, SIEN combined the strengths of artists from various universes to obtain an original art installation in order to provide an experience accessible for everyone.

Creative vision of the artists was expressed into an urban and modern UV graffiti painting for which a made to measure lighting fixture was created. The combination of white and UV LED’s with ordinary and UV sensitive paints, add drama and an original futuristic effect becoming a “permanent exhibition display”.
