Jonathan Pauwels aka Jaune is a Belgian stencil artist who creates urban interventions in his hometown of Brussels, where he puts tiny workers.
His intention, through the stencils he applies everywhere, is to change the role of these important figures who are ignored by the rest of the community.
Adibite in fact to fix what we put into disorder, they are not considered in the way the artist believes should be done and therefore, out of spite, transforms them into many small disturbers.
“Despite performing an important public service in garish fluorescent clothing, I observed that [sanitation workers] exist in the background of our urban environment, becoming almost invisible to the average person. It was in 2011 that I decided to free these characters from their roles by symbolically placing them in ever more absurd and whimsical scenarios in and around the city streets. Those who were supposed to keep the world tidy have become harbingers of chaos.”
