The night before the Fiesta Des Ursulines, we skated from the Brusk den to downtown Brussels to watch the artist known as Bonom paint a building. The location was in a busy area of Brussels, across from a ritzy café, on a busy street. Surprisingly, no one seemed to care and no cops showed up. Imagine this activity happening in downtown LA. The police would have shown up in riot gear and given him a proper Rodney King beating. We arrived just as Bonom was to begin and 90 minutes later, the Gorilla was born.
