    What time is it ?

    Just strolling around and enter shops left or right - look at some local art - like this one.
    The galery of Walter Duportail - an artist and designer of custom-made lighting
    A simular galery you will find in Ghent - Ottogracht 5 - near St-Jacobs
    His creations are shown during the famous "Gentsche Fieste" aswell

    Human tragedy-killing fields

    Graffity on walls in Antwerp - expressed by young artists about human tragedy now a day in many parts of this small world.
    This is more than politics - this is coming up for human rights - not for the economical interest of the big seven !

    Look at the state of the world via graffiti walls

    by Norali Updated Feb 8, 2004

    What I described as off beat path stuff in July is now turning to a "plain" must-see activity in Antwerp.

    I am talking about Graffitti walls. Yet, they are still impressive, striking and expressive. After two visits of the Muntplein area, I tend to consider it something I will have fun re-visiting when I am in Antwerp.

    At least to update my collection (naaah! joke), rather to see what the artists have to say on the "state of the world". Yes, for me, it is a media too. I clearly saw the difference between the July series and the November series. The latter tended to be more dark, in tune with our war, instable period. More guns.. yet the light-hearted twist given by the girls was still there.

    Wanna have a look at what I am talking about? Yes No, more off beat path please

    St. Andries Quarter

    What to see in this district?
    Two churches of which the St. Andries church should not be missed.
    Antique shops, social houses, beautiful Art-Deco houses,
    and not to be missed: a square full of beautiful graffiti.

    Madonna statue

    The Saint Andries Quarter is more an 'off the beathen path' district in Antwerp. Not many tourists go to this part of the city. It is located south of the Groenplaats (Green square) between the Nationalestraat and the Kloosterstraat.
    It used to be an old workmen's neighbourhood, a district with a strongly folks character and socio-cultural live.

    The statue is at the place where Tsar Peter The Great set foot on Antwerp. It was in 1717 to negotiate trade relations between Russia and the southern Netherlands.
