To celebrate the release of the new Gorillaz album “Humanz” on April
28th, the City of Brussels and Urbana Project invited four of Belgiums
best street artists to interpret Noodle, Russel, 2D and Murdoc on the
Grand Place. Brussels was proud to be chosen as the first of 500
locations all over the world to host the #HUMANZHOUSEPARTY, the biggest worldwide listening experience ever. The artists are Novadead, Nean, Eres and Eyes-B.
Three decades after the MacGregor family started building student accommodations for The University of Edinburgh, Scottish entrepreneur Charlie MacGregor’s rapidly expanding line of Student Hotels have caught on not just with students, but urban nomads and mobile professionals as well. The brand’s flagship hotel on Wibautstraat—Amsterdam’s Knowledge Mile—is not only serving the creative core of the city inside, but the walls outside the hotel have become a canvas for some of Amsterdam’s best street art. Appropriately, the artist that Widewalls has called “creative mind and a nonstereotypical voice of the generation” painted “Bangs” on the back of the Student Hotel in 2016. While the Richmond, Virginia artist explores contemporary themes in his work, he relies on the traditional values of friendship, honesty, and belief that success comes from hard work. @nilsrva@thestudenthotel
