Cool Giant Wooden Clip Promoting Urban Art in Belgium

Cool Giant Wooden Clip Promoting Urban Art in Belgium

Here is a fun display of contemporary urban art at its best. This giant wooden clip is currently being showcased in Belgium, in the Chaudfontaine park, as part of a contemporary art exhibition. Designed by Mehmet Ali Uysal, the unusual park addition replicates the clip, a common smart tool used to hang clothes for drying. The giant clipper becomes the focal point of this particular area of the park shown below and looks great while adding a bit of originality to its surroundings. We have to say we salute this idea and wouldn’t mind seeing a similar project in some of our own city parks. Moreover, we believe urban art should definitely be encouraged, as it has the ability to transform a simple and unattractive space into an area that feels alive. We are looking forward to your thoughts on this creative idea.- via illusion 360 – Photos © Mmarsupilami

    […] Aqui está uma diversão de arte urbana contemporânea no seu melhor. Este clip de madeira gigante, desenhado por Mehmet Ali Uysal, está sendo apresentado na Bélgica, no parque Chaudfontaine, como parte de uma exposição de arte contemporânea.Temos de dizer que nós saudamos esta ideia e não nos importaríamos de ver um projeto similar em alguns dos parques do nosso estado . Além disso, acreditamos que a arte urbana deve definitivamente ser incentivada, pois tem a capacidade de transformar um espaço simples e sem atrativos em uma área “viva”.
