Kito Sino is a Syrian artist who was immigrate in Belgium since 15 years ago. He was develops some artistic project in Brussels. One of his project is to draw on the train tickets.The banal train ticket is a medium for him, a mirror of his existence, his emotions, and his experiences. With no more than a ballpoint pen Kito creates subtle graphics that knows no taboos and who plays one time major themes such as love, time or peace, other times referring to the reality as it is experienced at that time. The train tickets fronts act for Kito as a diary. With this project he participated at Canvascollectie in Bozar in 2011.
