Everyday during this week, Rauwkost Collective offers you a behind-the-scenes look at POW WOW! Rotterdam. In our daily journal ‘POW! WOW! Daily’, we capture the atmosphere in Feijenoord, while the artists are busy with their murals.
In today’s episode, we travel through the Feijenoord district to visit Emanuel Barreira, who’s one half of Halfstudio. He’s painting at the most southern corner of Oranjeboomstraat, making a mural with the most important word in history of words: love. Despite to the current times we’re living in right now, full of growing hate, he will continue spreading the love; all the way from Portugal to Rotterdam!
At the north end of the neighborhood, the Hamburg based artist Anna T-Iron can be found painting a long and high mural. “Your ego is not your amigo”, it says. With that message, she wants to remember the people that life could be easy if you want it. Don’t think that you need to reach the level other people are expecting from you; just go with the flow and be you. In your own tempo, with your own goals.
