The Burgermeester van Sonsbeeckpark is maintained by local residents. They clean up the public gardens, plant flower bulbs and have even created playground elements from leftover materials. Located in this park is an old nursery school which was repurposed to a daycare during the week and a coffeehouse during the weekends. Thunder&Bold (NL) were invited to create a mural to highlight the special character of this park. They visited the building and the park and found inspiration while Jimmy Hendrix played in the background…
Rainy day, dream away
Ah let the sun take a holiday
Flowers bathe an’ ah see the children play
Lay back and groove on a rainy day
Thunder&Bold was founded in 2014. Before that, Martijn van der Meeren and Emiel Jokers worked as freelance graphic designers who shared an office. They worked for quite similar clients while sitting right next to each other. So they decided to start working together.
This mural no longer exists.
