I’ve always liked street art because it has a lot of power over people and the city. Since I spend most of the day browsing, I discovered Doel, a ghost-town in Belgium. It’s a graffiti heaven where squatters have found paradise. If you take your time and look at all the houses, you would think it’s a cartoon town. The place is in a continuous transformation, where deserted houses become pieces of a major art project.
