Walls with Paint: Kid Kura

In 'Walls with Paint,' Eindhoven-based artist, photographer, and art lover Lukedaduke shares the story behind unique street art in Eindhoven. This month: the eye-catching works 'Faces' and 'Brickboy' by Saman Dezai, a.k.a. Kid Kura.

Kid Kura graduated as a graphic designer as well as an illustrator. As a result, his work is a reflection of this! The use of bright, harsh colors is a constant theme. In the streets of Eindhoven, these colorful figures, called 'Faces,' are painted on the 'control boxes' of traffic lights.

You'll find one at the end of the Noord-Brabantlaan, for example. If you travel by bike, you'll encounter more cheerful characters from Kid Kura along the way.

Want to see more from Kid Kura? Simply follow the next route, by bike, of course, with a brand new surprise at the end! From the Noord-Brabantlaan, continue to the Beemdstraat and end at Strijp-S. Just before Dutch Design Week, a massive 'Brickboy' was left on the walls of skate hall Area 51. Have fun!
