Tymon de Laat 2021.
Project by OpenArt museum for the Dutch embassy.

One of the thing I love most about my job is that it takes me to so many different places where I get to experience new cultures and meet people. Thank you Open art museum for inviting me, the amazing time and good care. To say the least it has all been a challenge but you guys made it work like a charm. A big shout out goes to the dutch embassy and “Visit Jordan” for making this all possible.

We got to travel the country and experience all the beauty Jordan has to offer like one of the 7 world wonders Petra, the dead sea and WadiRum desert. I would do it all over again in the blink of an eye.

This wall speaks about the interchange of knowledge and support in the hydro cultural and agricultural segment of our nations.

For this wall i have been allowed to photograph Otto, the son of my dear friend Ben Heslop.

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.
