Facade Poem Painting

Derek Otte, City poet of Rotterdam 2017- 2018, wrote this poem (translation: all roads lead to dreams) and was giving it a public place in his city. He asked me to visualize this and paint it on a facade. The challenge was to give this short sentence enough body to fill up a square space. I also wanted the type-illustration to visually show the meaning of the poem.

Besides the painting I also worked together with Paul Kempe to create an annimation which was shown on the huge 13x13 meter WOW screen across central station and on digital abri's all over town for a month.

Watch the Behind-The-Scenes video of the painting below (see halfway in the video the annimation).
