8 meter x 4.5 meter.
Spraypaint on wall.
De Nieuwe Erven.
Heesch, Netherlands.
Tymon de Laat 2019.

This is the first mural in a series of 5 to be made in the municipality of Bernheze in the south of the Netherlands and will be my very own street art route.

This is a initiative by the Bernhezer Kunst Kring. Many thanks go out to Mathieu Bosch and Janine van der Giessen for making this happen. Also a hand up goes to Jan van Munster for setting us up with this wall and the impeccable care and assistance.

The mural is based on a photo taken in Merida Mexico of the model/muse Doris Peralta, thank you!

Back To Top

De Laat started painting murals and canvases, often based on his own photographs of the people he met during his travels. He exaggerates the natural lines in their faces, and fills the spaces that appear between those swirling lines with swaths of vivid color. The linework and color palette he applies in that way, are a means of translating his memories of Latin America to visual imagery. The food, the architecture, the clothes, and particularly his respect for the culture of indigenous peoples; it’s all in there, as de Laat transitions it over to enliven drab Western concrete.
