Back to Back is ‘a love song dedicated to the low and slow’ visualized in compelling detail. Built across the past 5 years, De Block created a body of work that captures the culture, the people, and their expressions in his signature graphic and cinematic compositions vibrant of colors and textures.
The seed of Back to Back, originated in his childhood years in his hometown Antwerp in Belgium, watching nineties music videos with hydraulic lowriders shaping the backdrop for performances of rap and rnb music artists and of sorts De Block admired. It was a combination of elements; the clashes of harsh sunlight, soft skin, and unapologetic style shot against a gritty urban landscape that drew De Block in.
