Tymon de Laat 2023

Here we see a portrait of a girl I photographed in Trinidad Cuba. She was sitting on the trunk of a classic cars as you can find many of them on the island. I decided to paint a child as this wall is situated in the playground. A big thanks goes out to the @gemeenterotterdam for supporting this project and a ofcourse to all my neighbours for pushing this project to a succes.

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.
