Lastplak is a collective of artists with various backgrounds in graffiti, "street art", visual arts and design.
As a group and individually we work on murals, pieces, paintings, stickers, shirts, etc. Since we enjoy painting together, it doesn't matter to us what surface it is: rooftops, t-shirts, walls, gates, kid's bedrooms, fr8s, "gaaspetten", anything, as long as we are not expected to paint a unicorn, indian, crying wolf or 2pac and that stuff on it.
One of our main activities is Live painting. On parties, festivals, exhibitions, BBQ's, birthday bashes, etc. we paint a mural or canvas. We use a variety of techniques: aerosol, acrylic paint, stencils, markers, stickers, posters, and more.
Every artist has his specific style and characters. Collaborating lets these styles and characters interact, which results in an explosion of visual madness and hilarity. Rarely a sketch is made, but often we work with a theme and lots of subliminal and symbolic messages.
You can see an overview of photos of projects and stuff in the galleries section on the right, or read about specific activities and artists in the top menu.
Here is a list of projects and expo's we did the last years. (the list needs to be updated)
