A contemporary version of a 17th century painting

The mural is inspired by the painting Las Lanzas, aka La rendición de Breda (the surrender of Breda), by Diego Velázquez. The painting from 1634 illustrates the victory of Spain in which Governor Justinus hands over the key of the city to Spinola.

The Netherlands vs. Spain

Five Spanish and five Dutch street artists made a 110 meters long mural on the wall of the former CSM factory. In the middle of the mural you’ll see a contemporary version of the key. A sign of a friendly battle with paint.

Super A

Super A is Stefan Thelen’s anti-superhero identity. Stefan uses traditional painting techniques and a knack for design to create compositions that manipulate familiar iconography into mind-bending and inquisitive pieces. The murals of Super A are often metaphoric scenarios rendered with hyperrealism. His work consists of realistic (fantasy) images combined with subtle, but remorseless critique on social or political issues.
