Graffiti work (2)


Here is the second part of the street mural painted in the 1e Haagpoort street opposite the main department stores in the city centre V&D and de Bijenkorf. Here earlier this month I posted the picture of the other part. It is just very colorful and actually, very nice.

Reading further into the archive of the Council House, I just found out that those street murals were in fact commissioned by the Council to a group of artists called Soulsur5 in Sept 2004, are unique by the size in the whole of the country, and should not at all be called "graffiti" .... as it is a call to keep the city walls cleared of graffitis!

Smart idea! And the mural itself is very attractive.

It does help cheer up a rather dreary passage!
