New mural for Bon Sjans Rotterdam aka “De Nieuwe Kans” which is an organization that reintegrates youngsters that due to a series of misfortune and bad decisions have deviated from the straight and narrow. Bon Sjans is a project that works on giving them a new way to approach society in a constructive way and mentally coach them to what we call socially acceptable.
On the image you see Oscar, one of the youngster I had the pleasure of receiving in my studio to take reference photos. In this work you see him about to take his hoody of and step into the light. This is the first wall of 3 that I will be painting on this location.
Many thanks go out to the Bon Sjans crew for inviting and trusting me with this job.
Tip for the wall hunters: Due to the many dark tones in the work the best time to go and photograph this wall is at the end of the day like an hour before sunset.
This mural can also be seen in: Gers! Magazine – Sterker door Strijd [PDF]
