Walls with Paint: De Bergstraat

In 'Walls with Paint', Eindhoven local, photographer, and art fan Lukedaduke shares the story behind a special street art project in Eindhoven. This month: colorful murals that make de Bergstraat even more vibrant. 

Every inhabitant of Eindhoven knows De Bergstraat.

It’s the connection between Grote Berg and Kleine Berg and the street with some of the most likable small entrepreneurs of the city. These shops have joined forces for a year and are trying to attract more locals and visitors from outside of Eindhoven.

It's a bit challenging during these times, but one does not give up.

The newly installed façade gardens will sprout green when spring comes. Illustrator and muralist Johan Moorman implemented the street identity he designed on three walls already; two more will follow.

I talked about Johan in an earlier article when he painted a tunnel for the juvenile superheroes of the city. The bright use of colors that characterizes his work is also visible at De Bergstraat.

When we, as Eindhoven, slowly wake up from our covid-sleep, De Bergstraat will look fresh.
