Mystery People

Not really Sunday graffitti, not really underground art.

Let me share with you my confusion: I have come across these mystery people (they are actual stickers) on walls everywhere around the Ixelles area. You have to imagine the stickers not being bigger than the size of a palm. This photo was taken just above the pavement at the street level.

Who are these people, what do they stand for, what is the message? You have no idea how confused, and mostly curious I am to find out! Help me out here.

Fantastic! I will check back to see if anyone knows. Love them.

Hi Andreea, this is very enigmatic and quite extraordinary. Just like Sally, I will come back to see if anyone has an answer to this !

Pat said...

Well, we'll all have to find out the answer to this mystery for sure. I've never seen anything like that.

I've seen these figures around de broukere and st catherines. they're usually placed at ground level on litter bins and lamposts.

i've asked around but i havent found out what's going on either.

They're great and they look so real! Now I'm curious about them too. Let us know when you find out.

well, it was part of an arts project, somewhere last year.
the figures are called lilliputiens by Laura Couderc.
but they are still around : http://www.maiis.be/couderec_fr.htm

These stickers were indeed part of an Art Festival begin this year. Wonderful idea!
