Lastplak is a collective of artists with various backgrounds in graffiti, “street art”, visual arts and design.
As a group and individually we work on murals, pieces, paintings, stickers, shirts, etc. Since we enjoy painting together, it doesn’t matter to us what surface it is: rooftops, t-shirts, walls, gates, kid’s bedrooms, fr8s, “gaaspetten”, anything, as long as we are not expected to paint a unicorn, indian, crying wolf or 2pac and that stuff on it.
One of our main activities is Live painting. On parties, festivals, exhibitions, BBQ’s, birthday bashes, etc. we paint a mural or canvas. We use a variety of techniques: aerosol, acrylic paint, stencils, markers, stickers, posters, and more.
Every artist has his specific style and characters. Collaborating lets these styles and characters interact, which results in an explosion of visual madness and hilarity. Rarely a sketch is made, but often we work with a theme and lots of subliminal and symbolic messages.
Last sunday almost the whole Lastplak crew together with Bust painted the Marnixbowl in Amsterdam. It’s one of the biggest skatebowls of Holland and it took us 9 hours to complete the job. It’s one of the dopest things we painted so far and it was well worth the muscle pain the next few days.
