MUGA from Belgium

MUGA street art Belgique


MUGA, a Belgian street artist recently participated in the exhibition “Seen on walls” in Belgium, his hometown, alongside  artists such as Obey, Swoon, Space Invader, Jef Aerosol, Evol and more.

MUGA utilizes stencils, collages, and past ups, mixing different kinds of materials and colors, full of details and meaning.
His artwork is directly playing with the urban environment and has no lack of humor, critics or poetry.
Muga Onair is a very active representative of neograffiti. He was born and grew up in Namur (an hour out of Brussels), and he is currently living and working between Marseille and Brussels.
 
He first started taking interest in aerosol at the time when Belgium saw the rising of the Hip Hop movement. Very early on, he turned towards “stencil” which he practices since 1996.
We are invited to observe these elements as a critique of our society, of images around us, publicity, discourses, media or technology. Muga has left traces of his art in many cities in Belgium, as well as in Paris, Marseille, Berlin, Amsterdam, and in the countries he has travelled to: Mali, Canary Islands, Sri Lanka, India…

 
Let’s discover!

I remember having seen a lot of these hands on the walls in Paris, but I don’t speak sign language, so hard to understand what the artist is trying to tell us, but interesting artwork that always made me smile…
