La Karavana – POW! WOW! Rotterdam 2020 ?

Here is my contribution for POW! WOW! Rotterdam’s 2020 edition. I had the pleasure to paint an old english doubledecker bus for La Karavana. This will be an on the road hostel run by 4 woman that will cruise through Europe looking for adventure. I cannot wait to see what places they are going to visit and the photos it will yield.

I would like to thank first of all the POW! WOW! crew that made it all happen and their hard work. The ladies of La Karavana that are fearless and trusted me without conferring a sketch to paint their bus. All the POW WOW artists that I had the pleasure of meeting up with friends and meeting new artists.

But also to my muse/model Nesrin for making it all happen on such a short time span and your enthusiasm. I loved working with you. Also a big thanks to Nerastrand and Black_beach_studios for providing exactly the shot i needed. And all the POW WOW sponsors!

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.
