De Bergstraat | Walls with Paint
In “Walls with Paint”, Eindhoven local, photographer, and art fan Lukedaduke shares the story behind a special street art project in Eindhoven. This month: the colorful murals, by Johan Moorman, that will 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 nicest small entrepreneurs of the city. These shops have joined forces for a year and are trying to attract more attention from locals and visitors from outside of Eindhoven.
During these times, this may seem a little hard, but one does not give up.
Small façade gardens have been installed and they will sprout with 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.
