PRINT REVOLUTIONARY SUPERSTAR
New ways of protests - Artboy Invisible.
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 London during the ecological crisis with Slam poetry, met with leaders of the CND (Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament ), met with Stanley Johnson, father of Boris Johnson.
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. We visited the Bansky museum in Palestine.
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.

ART NOT WAR
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 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 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.
