Rotterdam Daily Photo: The pink flyover

A few weeks ago I photographed the columns of the flyover underpass at the Oostzeedijk Beneden. According to the artists – Transister (Nelleke Boerkoel & Hanneke van Leeuwen) – Painted columns and laminated panels depicting the local residents, installed as graffiti prevention. The dimensions: 2 slopes, 15 columns and ceiling: total 834 m2! Made in 2009, the ceiling is popping pink, the 15 pillars with super cute prints and hand-painted with skill, both sloping walls act as a real portrait gallery with people from the neighbourhood. Thats what I called a piece of art!

P.S. The sloping walls can you see here >>
