Wall painting @ Gemeente Groningen




Groningen is the major city of the Northern Netherlands and, with a population of 186,000, the eighth largest city in the Netherlands. 

The building is designed by Dutch architect Siebe Jan Bouwma and was made in 1928 in style of the Amsterdam School. 
The Amsterdam School is a style of architecture that arose from 1910 through about 1930 in The Netherlands. Imbued with socialist ideals, the Amsterdam School style was often applied to working-class housing estates, local institutions and schools.

The local government asked Studio Lau to make a big wall painting in the courtyard of this particular building
The shapes of the stained glass from the inside of the building I used as an inspiration for the wall painting on the outside. In This way the wall painting blends in with the rest of the building and its style.
