Bridge art

Vrouwenpoortsbrug, Leeuwarden. I happened to pass here on the other side of the street when the bridge opened, and when I spotted the colourful down side I just managed to take a photo before the bridge closed again. I looked it up online and found out that it is a 5x10 metres (about 16x33 feet) canvas by local artist Bonny Dijkstra. Dijkstra called it a 'feast of colours' and gave this piece of art to 'his city' without wanting anything in return. His only goal was to make the city of Leeuwarden a bit nicer.

6 opmerkingen:

  1. Oh, this is new, I've never seen a mural on the down side of a bridge.
    I wonder how the artist did to paint there...

  2. Now there is no "down side", only "up side". :-)

  3. Altijd een goed idee voor kunst tegen de onderkant van een te openen brug. Leuk.


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
