What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Geometric Portraits




Today, I’m pleased to bring to you the street installations by Belgian artist Stefaan De Croock, aka Strook. He creates his large-scale works using fragments of reclaimed paneling, old doors, and vintage furniture, and turns it into wood paintings of sorts. Strook doesn’t paint the wood he uses. Instead, he keeps the pieces’ existing remnants of paint and natural coloring. I love how he uses the wood’s original texture to give the impression of brushstrokes.

You can follow Strook on his website and on Instagram.

  1. Great! The first picture is taken in my hometown Oostende and this creation was a part of “The Crystal Ship”,our local street art festival. The wood he used for this creation is from a ship wreck… . have a nice weekend

  3. What incredible video! The care they take in creating the installation, to the extent of even bolting it through the brick wall.
