Mauritshuis Mural on Joubertplantsoen
The third Mauritshuis Mural is complete! Artist Nadia van Luijk participated in our competition, and managed to win over both the expert jury and residents of the Transvaalkwartier with her tasteful design.
Nadia took her inspiration for the mural on Joubertplantsoen from the painting Vase of Flowers by Jan Davidsz de Heem in the Mauritshuis collection. The design is very much in her own style, however, and in keeping with the feel of the neighbourhood.
"The spray can is a homage to street art as an art form. The water and the roots symbolise the source of all cultures. The ingredients and tasty treats exploding forth refer to all the different culinary traditions you find in the Transvaalkwartier, on the Hague Market and in the local shops."
Nadia also came up with a very appropriate title for the new mural: Taste My Culture.
