Lastplak is a group of around nine painters with different backgrounds and diverse skills. Our goal is to paint, no matter what surface, size or location. Our work can be found all over the world, but our homebase is Rotterdam, so that's where most of our stuff can be seen. Ja toch!
I promised a local toy store to paint a 9" BUD designer toy, but never really started, untill lately I had a nice idea for the bomb shaped head, which would be perfect to visualize the current opinions about Geert Wilders, a dumb ass wannabe dutch politician.
Recently there is a lot of worldwide tension around Geert Wilder's anti-islamic movie "Fitna". Allthough allmost everybody in Holland knows Wilders is a total retarded ignorant asshole, horny for attention and using "freedom of speech" as an excuse to get it, alot of people abroad think he speaks for all Dutch people and its government, which is not true.
So I thought I had a nice idea for painting this crap designer toy, but still I lack the skills for doing it the way I want it to be, so I asked our protege Rafael Badilla from Chili to do the paint job, which I think worked out pretty damn well. The result shows the "politician" Geert Wilders and his "terrrorist" dark side. ( because he provokes hate and sets up people against eachother) You can turn the head to choose between 2 sides.
THe toy will be braught back to the "Nieuwenhuizen modelbouw" shop at the Oude Binnenweg for exposing it in the window of their shop. I hope they put it. It will not be for sale at the shop, please email for serious bids, not fot death threats or hate mail.
During the Rotterdam museumnight we painted a container for Maritime Museum. Allthough it was cold and windy, we brought our nice tropical reggae soundsystem, lots of friends, paint and beer. Old School GRRT was with us again and Torrie's objects were on display in the museum. Later that week P Bloem added his stuff and GRRT finished his job, with support from lots of hobby photographers, padvinders and girlie groupies.
