Bridgekeeper mural for POW! WOW! Rotterdam – ALL CAPS

Photo: Mjay Photography

Rotterdam, Netherlands 2021

This mural is inspired by the person who was working for the last 30 years in De Hef bridge in Rotterdam. As the wall is located close to the bridge the connection was quite obvious and we felt that it was good opportunity to emphasize the importance of the work that many times is not seen even though is responsible for keeping the city moving.

So lucky we were that we had chance to meet the family of Arie de Weerd and as we learned from them he was proud of his profession. Also we had unique opportunity to enter the bridge, which is now a monument and is open for visitors only one time per year. It was very touching and unforgettable experience, thank you to all that make it happen.

We heard about Arie from the documentary directed by Dirk Rijneke, trailer to “The (Last) Bridgekeeper” was a starting point for us to create this work.

Big, big thanks to all wonderful people we met during the festival and to all of those that made this project possible.
