There are four large bicycle tunnels under the A16 on the Liesboslaan. The tunnels form an important connection between the city of Breda and the large rural area De Rith. This area is known for its red fruits, vegetables, forests and ancient hunting land.
Nase Pop (Daniel Stroomer) drew inspiration for the mural from the contrast between city and countryside, two extremes that come together in this place. For this project we painted with Graphenstone, a sustainable paint that saved almost 27,000 kg of CO2 for this wall. In this way, the artwork contributes to a liveable and green city.
The initiative for the largest Blind Wall to date comes from the residents of the area. Together with the Municipality of Breda, they are committed to making the Rith more attractive, safer and better known. This project also includes the murals by Kimberly Rochat on the Sprundelsebaan and Heavenleigh Jeroense on the Moerdijksepostbaan.
