In 2016, The Crystal Ship dropped anchor in the city of Ostend. Ever since, the arts festival has turned the coastal town into Belgium’s leading open-air gallery, with over a dozen world-renowned street artists setting sail for it every year. In 2020, the artist from Barcelona Elisa Capdevila was invited to paint one mural in the outskirt of the city.
Elisa paints impressionist murals with an uncanny resemblance to the Flemish Masters. She took fellow artist Alba with her and painted a gigantic sleeping baby on the wall of Bluebridge, an incubator that stimulates businesses in the blue economy. The themes this young Spanish woman always incorporates into her work are childhood, nostalgia and family. Pocket-sized artists, oversized murals.
