house covered in graffiti art
- Did you notice the balcony?


Meeting of Styles organizes international streetart festivals. In August 2016 there was a meeting in Berchem. This district of Antwerp has made quite a name for itself in the streetart scene. Now there is a handy walking map which takes you past the artworks.


This picture returns to one of my favourite works of art on show. A previous post included the (normal) house next to it, here I focus on just the artwork alone, with just a bit of the sidewalk included below.

Bonjour Benny

C'est incroyable ce que l'on peut faire avec des millions de points aux couleurs différentes et quand on y pense vraiment c'est une photographie le résultat.



Bonsoir, cher Benny,
Cette fresque monumentale s'apparente au pointillisme (exercice dont les débuts ont été remarqués au XVIe siècle), dépasse l'entendement, car il faut penser avec du recul pour obtenir un tel résultat.

Hello Benny,

Seurat is alive! This is evidence that Pointillism lives in Antwerp, just as it still lives in Paris.

Warm regards,


  • Great

Bravo et amitié

Hi Benny,
very interesting presentation and quite strange.
well done

Dag Benny
Maar goed dat ik altijd de info lees, want ik had anders echt niet ontdekt dat dit de gevel van een huis is. Maar als je goed kijkt zijn de bewijzen hiervan toch zichtbaar. Dit festival is wel een flinke wandeling waard.
Groet Rob

Ciao Benny

Oh yeah I noticed the balcony, making a nice mono-brow over the forehead. What a great piece of art, colour and creation of depth. I like it a lot. Excellent work.

Have a great weekend

Hello Benny,

its really nearly a wonder what can be done by an artist with 1000th of colorful points to get such an amazing artwork. I like your contribution to TE here very much.TFS.

With regards from Luxembourg


Hi Benny
about my NYC photo, i know yo mentioned you wish the bike was more in the reflection....i do have a few photos of bikes being reflected, but the other parts of the scene are disappointing, so i had to pick and choose the best overall one.

you would certainly win any contest involving weird and strange subjects, this is another one. and no, i didn't really notice the balcony till you mentioned it. reminds me of how comic books use the same basic dot patterns for color, if you look closely. this is simply awesome!
