The “Guardian”

See how this extraordinary artwork was created

The “Guardian” adorns the southern façade of the former Fire station building since June 2018,
when this artwork of Stefaan De Croock was revealed during the Shipyard Workers Day.

Stefaan De Croock, operating under the pseudonym Strook, is a Belgian artist that creates portraits
by recycling old wood he salvages from former industrial plants or abandoned homes. This time Stocznia Cesarska invited Stefaan to the area to create the #newstories out of shipyard’s rich history.

Get to know the process of the creation of the artwork and its symbolism.
