News From Rome: Bart Lodewijks scales the quay wall overlooking the Tiber

Artist Bart Lodewijks climbs the famous quay wall overlooking the Tiber! All in pursuit of a drawing!


Whilst in Rome, Lodewijks couldn’t resist the impulse to climb the famous Roman city quay wall, to make yet another one of his famous chalk drawings, not unlike the chalk drawings which have appeared and disappeared in Sligo’s Doorly Park neighbourhood over the last couple of years. The great views over the Tiber and the ancient city are a magnificent backdrop for this incredible drawing.

Bart Lodewijks returns to Sligo again in Spring 2015, where he will continue to make drawings in the city. Bart Lodewijk’s residency at The Model will culminate in an exhibition at The Model in Autumn, 2015.

Artist Bart Lodewijks, artist-in-residence at The Model since 2011, is currently participating in an exciting group show at the Fondazione Giuliani per l’arte contemporanea in Rome, with Roma Publications – an independent art publisher founded by artist Mark Manders and graphic designer Roger Willems. The exhibition, which opened in October features new drawings by Lodewijks and other artists, to view the artists:
