Once again the artist militia meets in an unruly group portrait
Rinus Van de Velde
The Belgian artist Rinus Van de Velde is creating a Night Watch 2.0. This monumental charcoal drawing was inspired by the genre of group portraits from the 16th and 17th century. He is bringing this tradition to Hasselt’s legendary local café Cambrinus. He depicts a fictional community of artists featuring both people from his own personal circle and the café’s regulars.
