Belgian artist Jaune places miniature community workers figures in the space of world metropolises (including Brussels, Bogota, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Stavanger, London).
Jaune about himself:
I’m a stencil artist and urban interventionist from Brussels, Belgium. My work is based on the paradox between the visible and the invisible, with sanitation workers the main protagonists in my humorous installations and paintings – an idea that was born from my own experience working in the profession.
Despite performing an important public service in garish fluorescent clothing, I observed that they existed in the background of our urban environment, becoming almost invisible to the average person. It was in 2011 that I decided to free these characters from their roles by symbolically placing them in ever more absurd and whimsical scenarios in and around the city streets. Those who were supposed to keep the world tidy have become harbingers of chaos.
