This was the main mural created during a one month artist residency at Festival Mundial in Tilburg, NL 2014. Festival Mundial is a yearly world music and culture festival and takes place in Tilburg’s Spoorzone. It hosts international musicians, artists and performers during its two day festivities and created an artist in residence program in 2014.
The apartment building was in an area of Tilburg called Jeruzalem and was demolished a few years ago. I was introduced to community organizer and social entrepreneur Miranda Winter who told me a little bit about the area. These buildings were constructed after WWII and were meant to be just temporary. Years later and bit by bit, the entire neighborhood of Jeruzalem is being rebuilt.
It’s ok to draw on walls kids… As part of the residency, I ran a couple of art workshops with kids drawing monsters together in chalk and collaboratively on large sheets of paper.
Suzan Fikke living in Tilburg got in touch with Festival Mundial and was nice enough to offer her wall for a mural.
