to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Kunstroute-Leuven ontspoort!

pubs, posh & trendy cafes, restaurants, brasseries, ... on the "Oude Markt" in Leuven - locally known as the longest beercounter in the world (this is a buzzing University city) - have works on display of 40 local artists. The theme is 'derailment' . Works will stay on the premises from 26th of March until 26th of April; that is the weekend of the Open Studios art tour Kunstroute-Leuven.

Pictures taken in bad conditions. Not much time to focus or choose the best possible angle; one cannot disturb the customers every time to have an excellent view. Lighting is a problem and so is the heavy smoke. So here we go with a selection, some pictures were just not good enough.

this one has a little story : the muslim owner did not want an erotic work on his walls (look at the other work of Arne up here at Karément), so Arne put up a painting of peppers. But on different windows of this pita-place are these sexy images....

There is much more to see and many of the artists have more than one work displayed. Worth while the tour. The whole list can be found on the site, and after entering click 'ontspoort!'.
