Tante van de wijk (aunt of the neighbourhood)

Karski (1974) & Beyond (1983) are known as an artist duo from the Netherlands. They have a background in graphic design and the academy of fine arts and were heavily involved in graffiti. Karski picked up the spray can when he was only 10 years old. Beyond, being from another generation, started painting in 1997.

This work was made for a housing association. Karski and Beyond spoke with the neighbourhood what kind of picture they wanted. They want something colourful and so the 4 murals on the Laakweg are very colourful. This one shows a woman in the prime of her life. We have renamed her the "aunt of the neighborhood." Someone you can go to, who stands for a warm, familiar home feeling.
