The wildly colorful “Notre Temps” fresco was painted on the ceilings and walls of the Hankar STIB Metro station by Roger Somville, leader of the Belgian Expressionists Movement. The mural uses a lot of bright and strident colors in shades of orange and red to represent the struggles of the working class to attain social and economic justice. Somville completed this monumental mural in 1976 with the help of four of his assistants.
Just around the corner from the Recyclart, under the train bridge at the rue des Tanneurs you will find the impressive work left by the Collective FARM PROD during one of their live painting sessions. Pretty amazing work that’s worth going to take a look if you enjoy urban Art.

A short distance from the Recyclart just turn on the first street on your left
The Tour du Midi fountain is located on Avenue Paul Henri Spaak just at the base of this impressive building. I haven’t been able to find any information about this fountain. If anyone does know something please do leave a comment I’ll be glad to add it with the proper credits.
