Passage mural

Continuing with the Comic Book Mural Trail in Antwerp we are at the Eiermarkt, where on request a mural was created -called 'Passage'- picturing the relation between nature and the city. The characters painted here are carrying plants and flowers that they just bought.

And this girl with her hair blowing in the wind refers to the 'Boerentoren', a tower and drafty spot in the city.

These murals are created by Jan van der Veken (1975), a Belgian illustrator who specializes in book covers and posters. He works internationally for both large and small clients in the cultural and commercial sector.

I'm linking to Monday Mural.

  1. Ze zijn zo leuk deze murals, die vrouw op de pilaar is enig.

  2. Yep, I've experienced the strange wind loading effects of tall buildings at a café I enjoy. One day last week I watched the paper bag my sandwich came in suddenly take flight and kept aloft as if stayed there by some invisible hand.

  3. Pretty mural, almost has an indigenous slant, if I may. Great to see all the rental bicycles also, especially the bakfiet.
    Have a Great Week!
    Peace :)

  4. This really reminds me of book illustrations from the 30s and 40s. I love this series. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  5. Er moeten in een vrij korte tijd toch wel heel veel murals bijgekomen zijn. Dit is ook weer een hele mooie nieuwe.

  6. Another great mural in this series! I really like the style of the people.

  7. The second one particularly appeals to me.


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