Stefaan de Croock

Stefaan de Croock, a Belgium painter and sculptor creates wall sculptures made entirely from reclaimed wooden panels, doors, and furniture.  His murals adorn various buildings in Belgium deliberately choosing locations pertinent to the each design such as the side of an old furniture factory. His training and experience as a graphic designer puts a clear mark on his artistic vision.  In Facebook he says this about his work:

“My drawings and murals are populated by urban influences, but I combine them with organic forms and lines. My artworks are a combination of improvisation and construction. Spontaneity is very important in my work.”

The artist can be followed on his website, Facebook and Instagram.

Ulla-Stina Wikander


Over the years Swedish designer Ulla-Stina Wikander has collected cross-stitch embroideries to create new covers for vintage everyday objects.  To date she has produced over a hundred different designs. She explains her concept as follows:

“In 2012 I started to cover ordinary household items from the 70s, like a vacuum cleaner, sewing machine, electric mixer etc. I find it interesting to see how these objects transforms in a new context; the obsolete, the things we do not want any longer, the old and forgotten things. They become artifacts from a begone era, disguised, camouflaged and dressed. I give them a second life and although I cut the embroideries into pieces, I think they look very beautiful, when they have been ‘dressed up’.”
