A Little About DOK
SinceJune 2011DOKturnedtheabandoned siteof the GhentOldDockstemporarilyinto alivelyand
inspiringmeeting place wheresmall
concerts, sports, exhibitions,
films, refreshingideas, piracy
anda touch of madnesshappened.It's an amazing site, they made their own
beach, bar, restaurant.It's a hub for
artists of all kind and it's a very open minded, creative place, and unfortunately
it is getting demolished to become office's and apartments.... Such is Life..
Sunday they would hold a flea market where, people would sell their wares, it
has a specialist music section selling rare vinyl's.
Little About IDa4 @ DOK
after staying at the Eco Hostel with Maarten and Liselot, they suggested that we
might take part in the market on the Sunday we were in Ghent.its only €5 tohave a spot so what
the worst that could happen...
we deiced to sell the IDa4 vinyl's with iconic images on.We prepared a few the night before, but then
we did the rest at the market as a live art show.

created a nice crowd at times and we sold quite a bit (this means we could eat
this week ha) but we had a lot of interest from the Ghent crowd and we are
hoping for a couple of collaboration from a local arts promoter and a woman who
made ceramics for a living.
loved the idea and we also sprayed CD's and single vinyl's. You might just hear
about us doing more markets because it went down really well.
stuck around and spent some of our hard earned Euro's on Belgium beer and cocktails..
it would be rude not too... But we glad we did because we were fortunate enough
to see the band Fifty Foot Combo, a Ghent band with abig cult following.. the only way I can describe
their style is The Shadows on Acid! with
a 1920's female Film noir lead keyboard player.
But they were absolutely amazing and we danced till we literately passed out..
Look carefully and you just might see us at the front...
ROA Urban Exploration
A Little About ROA
ROA is the pseudonym of a graffiti artist from Ghent, Belgium. He
has created works on the streets of cities across Europe and the United
ROA generally paints wild animals or birds in black and white.
While in Ghent we were told of a disused factory where where is 30+ of ROA's work, many belive this is where he developed his stlye and practicsed it, his schooling days..
This used to be a textile factory and is massive, its in a state of disarray and is now dangerous place to visit and is currently projected to be demolished next year This is a massive shame because all this street art will be lost for yet again more apartments and offices, oh joy of joys...
This is just a few of the amazing pieces hidden in the building..
