SHOE PRESENTS CALLIGRAFFITI AT MAC FLY

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

Today was the day I had been looking forward to all week: a/ because it was saturday obviously and b/ because Niels “Shoe” Meulman was at the Mac Fly store in Gent signing his Calligraffiti book. Weather was great so took to town with the fam for ice cream and new kicks (for Uma, not me, proof below) Passed by the Mac Fly shop to pick up my signed copy, had a chat with the master and returned home satisfied… Today was a good day! Big up Dynoo Mac Fly and Alex On Point for organizing the event and Shoe for doing this:

Calligraffiti @ Mac Fly, Gent

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Really looking forward to this event combining two of my loves: graffiti & calligraphy! On April 24th Niels “Shoe” Meulman will be showcasing his Calligraffiti project at Mac Fly in Gent. Shoe was one of the very first European writers, man goes way way back, he was one of the Euro writers who made it into Henry Chalfant & James Prigoff’s mid-to-late 80′s graffiti bible titled Spraycan Art (amongst others such as Mode2, 3D, Goldie…ring a bell?). You know the Futura, Seen, Dondi… era, that’s how oldskool! Recently he worked as creative director at BBDO and MTV and his work is part of the permanent collection at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam and the SF MOMA! I can’t wait to go see the exhibition, buy the book & T-shirt and have the master sign my original copy of Spray Can Art, ha!
The event is organized by On Point and Mac Fly and I expect it to be absolutely ram jam!
