Mural at the local school of the famous Swedish personality Barbro “Lill Babs” Svensson who lived in the town of Järvsö.
I would like to give a big up to the awesome crew that made this possible Mariá, Julia and Johanna.
Also a big thank you to the daughters of Barbro for the trust,  I hope I did your mother justice with her portrait and was able to capture her spirit.

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.
