Quartier bleu in Hasselt has added a new street art piece! This time it is the turn of the talented Roberto Ciredz, an Italian nominated street art artist. The work was created in collaboration with artist collective Treepack and can be admired on the facades of renovated XIOR student complex in the Armand Hertzstraat in Hasselt.
Ciredz's giant mural is a beautiful abstract creation that takes its inspiration from water, nature and ice landscapes. Ciredz's artwork "Flood" is based on the many waters of the Quartier bleu neighborhood. The color palette he used is typical of his work and varies between soft and vibrant blues, giving the work a soothing feel. The combination of these colors and the flowing areas of color that Ciredz has used evoke the feeling of being in a serene, underwater world.
Moreover, not only is it pleasing to the eye, but it also conveys an important message. The artist wants to make people aware of the fragility of our planet and the importance of preserving our natural resources. This is also reflected in his other works, which often focus on the relationship between humans and nature.
With this project, the artist collective Treepack has not only added a special work of art to the streets of Hasselt, but also a unique experience for the students who see the mural on a daily basis. In fact, the artwork was placed on the renovated XIOR student house. Roberto Ciredz's work embraces the complex architecture and shapes it into a new beautiful work of art . In addition, it invites passersby to reflect and the work conveys an important message that will inspire many people to engage in the preservation of our planet.
