Sabor Sabor restaurant.
Adrien Milderstraat. Rotterdam NL.

This is the finished commissioned wall I painted in my favourite Mexican restaurant Sabor Sabor.
This is a tribute to the nanny Antonia of the chef Liz Delfinger. She was taught by her how to cook from the age of 4 and has never stopped since. If you are in Rotterdam and you are looking for the authentic Mexican food make sure to drop visit Liz and Alfonso.

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.
