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!
This afternoon some of us were lucky to visit the P-Funk Grandmaster George Clinton Parliament Funkadelic Masterclass at the World Music and Dance Centre, Rotterdam. One hour of Question / Answer and a nice jamsession with WMDC students. Afterwards we offered him a painting and feeling like visiting Sinterklaas we took some pictures and offcourse got the musicians to sign my precious Parliament albums. Tonight they perform at the WATT.
To our big surprise we got asked to paint at the infamous Zwarte Cross festival in de Achterhoek. Four days of camping, mud, beer, truckersballen, motorbikes, ekte tsjerrekters, more beer, alot of boeren and of course plenty of paint! Top Lastplak farmers Boortorrie, BA, Yen, MayB, ACAB and Oles visited tante Rikie together with mr. Daan Markus.com and had a super good time, hope to be back next year, heukehhh!!!
Last sunday there was a spontaneous action by different writers who happened to be in Rotterdam to paint the side of Club Watt. The police showed up because people from the neighborhood complained and there was no official permit, after a hour of arguing we could finish our mural. Martha Cooper was also with us to document the whole thing, in the end she said: "Police 0 – Art 1". Here some pictures.
