VIDEO. Unknown graffiti artist behind the ‘Ghent schreeuwers’ speaks for the first time: This is pure expression
Ghent Black-and-white emaciated figures diving just as in Ghent, the other to DOCK and the Old cattle market. They were to ‘Ghent schreeuwers " crowned and even linked to the Ghent stroppendragers who oppose the Emperor Charles V. We spoke with the artist ‘Keep Punching Joe’ to hear how he will experience this.

“I had to laugh when I read that,” he says. “I had a lot of sense to respond. But I, of course, must remain anonymous. That being said, I am inspired by Edvard Munch's The Scream. But for me, it is about expression. Myself to express, I am a visual thinker. My I draw my inspiration from everywhere, movies, music videos, album art, photography, paintings...”

We asked the ‘Keep Punching Joe’ or we him should follow when creating a work. We went to the old concrete factory in the Koopvaardijlaan. “I didn't expect to get the attention, and that is really not the intention,” he says, while we are the bridge to DOCK to cross. “The less known you are, the less risk you run in the problems to come. Though recognition might be nice.”

The painting, he sees it as therapy, “I paint primarily for myself. It is a way outside the traditional art world is still very visible. And, of course, is the graffitiscene great to linger in. Together with your sizes to make a work, a pint there. Blessed.” The old concrete plant is one of the legal places where you graffiti can. But of course there is also the illegal graffiti. “If you're illegally working, you need fast and direct. Here I have time, and I am often three hours working on a job.”

A title will receive the new work. Everything is open to interpretation. “Mostly I wanted to get some movement in it put,” he says. Three ghostly figures who are already shouting one of them down. Not the most cheerful images, but it does what it should do. It evokes something. “My parents are a fan of my work and support me. The most beautiful christmas present I ever got from them were pots of white and black paint. If you ask my mother, sometimes when I look something beautiful, go to make,” he says with a smile.
