For Blind Walls Gallery Breda, my friend Heavenleigh Jeroense was asked to design and paint a mural on a electricity house. I helped her painting the design on the walls together with a small team.
The design is inspired by the Liesbos, a Oaktree forest that has been owned by the Dutch royal family the Nassau’s since the 15th century. Here they could hunt on the blue herron colony that have been established here since the Middle Ages.
You’ll also see a tree with cloths on it in the painting. That is called a ‘fevertree’. When people got fever back in the day, they would hang a piece of clothing in the tree to get rid of their sickness.
The mural is situated on the Moerdijkse Postbaan 32 between Breda and Etten-Leur.
