Busy, busy workers
This whopper of a mural, done by Joren Joshua, stretches to 130(!) meters. The mural Is based on the story of Cornelius van Gogh, Vincent van Gogh’s forgotten younger brother, and the Backer & Rueb machine factory.
Joren’s creation shows the coming and going of factory workers, assembling the trains that made Backer & Rueb famous.
Van Gogh’s little brother
It also features a man with bright orange hair, that man is Cornelius (Cor) van Gogh, Vincent van Gogh’s younger brother.
