PRINT REVOLUTIONARY SUPERSTAR
New political ways of protests - Artboy Invisible.
I attempt to reform ways of protests for more creativity, and that revolts would be more convincing for the public. As a participant activist we stopped the highway where Donald Trump's convoy was leading to the new NATO center in Brussels, surrounded by six dozens policemen. In London, with Acting for Peace, WRI, and Extinction Rebellion we attempted to stop the convoy of superweapons brought to the DSEI convention where multi-nationals gather stocks of weapons to sell to other nations. I participated to the events of Extinction Rebellion in October 2019 in London during the ecological crisis through Slam poetry, met with leaders of the CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament ), performed on a stage where Stanley Johnson, father of Boris Johnson, spoke just a few moments before.
THE INVISIBLE REVOLUTION
‘Impossible is nothing’, to work inside, to create outside of the structures. ‘Just do it’, you can set your mind to a perfect comprehension of art and poetry. You can use your left and right brains, combine them. Make the best outcomes. Make an income from Nothing. Tell the Truth. Freedom rings as a perfect calling. Go places outside from the maps. And join the invisible realm of ideas & conceptions. Perfect your mind and your arts. Work on yourself. Your heart is your personal artwork.
NEW YORK CITY
I've understood you can be famous in your own mind, and not on the internet. I'm training to be the next spiderman. I did what I wanted in New York. I met with friends of Jordan Peterson, people who owned self-driving cars. Amazon is taking over America. Bloomberg and the gangs too. The world is still in shamble. Therefore I tried to help with performing my poetry in NYC, it helped, I received respect for the words I uttered, as a young performing king of rats; I was good, bright and brilliant. A person who worked for Oprah in the past; at the famous Nuyorica Poet cafe, told I was a revolutionary sweet-talker; to our audience after my performance; I did what I could; I was a few inches to be on radio in Brooklyn. Change is plausible; your turn, speak and change this world. Your will is wanted. Bring me hope that I'm not alone.
In Hong Kong, to work with the Umbrella revolutionaries was complex. The power of money, the culture of art and corporate stock market influx. Since a few years, Hong Kong has been become the capital of sponsored and corporate Art in the world. The federal reserve and the gold standard. Our goal as activists was to print everything. To prove the flatness of our world and economy. Never forget. You can print everything. Including all the bills in the world. That's the value you have for it. You can invent new forms of bitcoins or just use your printer. A piece of art is a dollar bill in the making.
Thank you to Xr-peace to let me sign me up for this. Performing poetry in front of The Ministry of Defence in London was an unexpected childhood dream. To be able to bring my dad who was in the Malaysian military, to potential tears, was much fun. I appreciated to be able to make a portrait of poetry about poverty, about the kingdom of rats, about ending NATO, about James Bond, which I really enjoyed mocking truthfully, one hundred meter from the new Scotland yard. In front of policemen flabbergasted, enjoying it, also I would like to thank the MP from parliament who was there and strongly saluted me for my bravery. Thanks to England to be perhaps the last of all civilisations. I was called on the stage to perform Slam, whilst Stanley Johnson, the father of Boris Johnson (Prime-Minister of the time - Brexit), was leaving himself the stage and interviewed after a talk where he spoke about ecology, and endorsed Extinction Rebellion.
EXTINCTION REBELLION BELGIUM
I'm working for Extinction Rebellion in Belgium, at Basecamp, we elaborated new tactics. We worked with Deep Fk - to enhance the political climate emergency discourse of Belgian Prime Minister Sophie W. to make
her say things she would not have said : the ecological challenges we're actually facing as a civilised Europe, during the Corona virus outbreak. The operation was on national media.
"ART HAS A PLAN"
Artboy aka La Révolution Invisible.
Posted stickers in front of the house of Pablo Picasso - Salvador Dali - Rene Magritte - Vincent Van Gogh - in New York in Tribeca in front of the apartment of Jay-Z and Beyonce, did street protests at the 911 memorial in front of the studio of Fox News and in the Bronx, in Egypt used the peaceful iconographies of Magritte to promote peace, in London invented new technics of infinite trompe l'ceil without using photoshops. Acted against the Illuminati and the Skull and Bones 322 in Brussels. In Hong Kong printed for a few thousands of dollars worth of protest signs actualised for the 21st century. Met and spoke to Romeo Elvis in Brussels, and the next day made a small campaign of stickers around town with a portrait that Artboy had drawn that night.
As an activist, my will and my imagination can change the world. IN APRIL 2019, Artboy travelled to Israel - Palestine, in the cities of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, West Bank, Jericho, Naplous, Ramallah, Bethlehem where I studied how in zones of conflicts we could attempt to use our artskills for better project of street-art campaigns to attempt to replace deadly weapons, by mind-shifting images that could reshape our means for wars for means for peace. Throughout art we will lead through victory. I've made a sticker campaign in Israel and Palestine. In Bethlehem, in front of the Banksy museum in Palestine, the wailing wall.
I participated to the ICAN movement, which won the Nobel prize of peace in 2017. I started to make the cover photo for the Facebook account of ICAN in America through internet and a poster for the movement in Belgium. We did extensive stickers campaign and flyers delivery.
I'm a graphic activist that exhibited my works during the war in Ukraine, helped activists in Texas for the legalisation of marijuana, with posters around the world with political artworks, I exhibited with Nike football at the museum of Artscience in Singapore. I'm also a Slam poet of my own, I am at the radio of the university of Belgium, for six month I defended a prose with a political point of view on airwaves. I speak about political issues in theatres and the scenes of poetry in Belgium. I make loads of stickers. New ideas. I also am part of Acting for peace (BE), as an activist. I travelled alone to Egypt. With activists in Israel and Palestine. I also am a vocal artist that it be in spoken words or hip-hop. My goal as a graphic activist is to bring my understanding of revolution, my pragmatic ideal to make (y)our best ideas possible.
I designed for free multiple campaigns of posters and flyers for the legalisation of Marijuana in Texas, and participated with posters in important strategic places, such as the theatre where Lee Harvey Oswald was shot by Jack Ruby.
STATE OF THE ARTS
Project subsidies within the sector, however, will be cut by 60% from €8.5 to €3.4 million. Project subsidies involve funding of specific initiatives in theatre, music and arts centres across Flanders and Brussels, as well as grants for individuals to realise a project. We collaborated with State of the Arts for a music video speaking of the artists of the 21st Century. They even shared it. I performed poetry defending the artists on Radio and television before that Belgian subsidies started to diminish drastically.
