The largest fresco of Belgium can now be admired along the walls of the De Wand tram station in Laeken. Just a stone’s throw from the Atomium along tramway lines 4, 19 and 23 the De Wand station is a symbolic crossing point between the suburbs and the city of Brussels. Entitled â€œThe Walkâ€, this massive work of art was created by 30 graffiti artists from Belgium and beyond was part of a grant from the Brussels’ region for the renovation of public spaces and has grown over the years to become Europeâ€™s biggest graffiti wall with it 4500 square meters. The total cost of the project was of 200 000â‚¬ where 30 artists worked for 9 days and no less than 6000 spray paint cans were used during the process.

i love this wall…it's nice to see some artistic graffiti and not just tags which add nothing of value.
This one is real art! I like to use the "Tram" when I am in Brussels, to go to the atomium!
hope it will stay so for a long time
Great feature on this graffiti wall! Some of them are really beautiful!
I really like the rest of your blog too! I also started a picture blog a while ago (penguinfive.com), so it is nice to see what others are doing!
Sadly this is just the exception that proves the rule. Would be a pleasant change to see some real underground artists leaving their mark on the city instead of the usual lame taggers.
@ Penguin Five,
Good luck with the blog !
i actually live there it's been around for years ! it will stay 😀
Amazing…. the artist's work should be appreciated and promoted.
I hope to come and admire it one day soon.
We recently went to Belgium, we loved the art on the walls!
We just returned from Brussels. We took a bus tour of the city and they never mentioned the wall. I happened to catch a glimpse of it as we drove on; so glad to find this site so I can appreciate it.
It's a bit off the tourist circuit and city center but it's an impressive work of art
It's not a wall! it's global tram station!
Brussel artist're crazy !!! like brussel People
I loved it! best graffiti ever seen!
Amazing art on the walls. I have never seen this but definitely looking forward to visit this place in this weekend.
Can you take pictures there or is situated where you can't get to it?
There's a tram station there, so everyone can go
