This wall is inspired by the sinister history of the location, which used to be a graveyard for people that died from the plague (around 1514). Because of this the graveyard became unpopular, therefore the cemetery was used to bury the poor, children, soldiers and suicides. The children dancing around the rat, the spreader of the plague is a link to the children song ‘Ring around the Rosie’ which refers to the black sores that would appear on your body as part of the plague. The artists also added elements that refer to the city Breda.
Breda artist Rutger Termohlen depicts people, animals and a combination of both. His work is dynamic and with rich contrasts in colour and theme: from love to death, from light to dark. Van der Sluijs added dreamy details, Super A mostly makes both animal and human portraits.
