Adele Renault – Feathers And Faces

The Jaunt x Neils ‘Shoe’ Meulman

The Jaunt have just announced their tenth trip of the project. For this trip they have booked flights to Istanbul, Turkey, with Dutch legend Niels ‘Shoe’ Meulman and will be producing a brand new print along the way – selling them for 60 Euro’s, which is probably the most amazing deal around for a Shoe print.

The first Shoe tags appeared on the Amsterdam streets around 1979, and haven’t left since.

In 2007 he launched the ‘Calligraffiti’ movement, an art form that fuses calligraphy and graffiti.
