Those two here are us, Eponine and Sebastian. Two Belgians with a love story and a passion for art. Eponine has been based in Madrid since 2002 and in 2004 she set in motion a project to open up the homes of Madrid artists to the public, the Los Artistas del Barrio festival. That’s when it all began.
During the summer of 2011 she met Sebastian in a bar in Brussels and what started out as a Summer romance turned into something that lasted a lot longer. After some months in a long-distance relationship Sebastian took the plunge and moved to Madrid in 2012.
And here we are, still together almost 10 years later, with a festival, a shop, two kids and two cats, trying our best to juggle them all together in this wonderful world we have created for ourselves, without any grandparent nearby to help us out. We couldn’t ask for anything more!
