Eternal Love | 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 mural called Eternal Love by Studio Giftig.
In 2017, Niels van Swaemen en Kaspar van Leek finished a huge project called ‘Tunnelvisie’ (Tunnelvision) for the city of Eindhoven underneath the A50 highway. After a long summer filled with paid mural jobs, they were looking for an excuse to do some free work. With the help of the city of Eindhoven, they claimed a spot in the city center.
It might not be located at the most appealing place, and surely it isn’t their only work, but perhaps it’s their most commonly known mural in Eindhoven: Eternal Love at the Nieuwe Emmasingel.
Niels and Kaspar have known each other since 2007, and since 2012 they focus on painting murals fulltime. They developed an incredible realistic painting style in combination with surreal elements.
The beauty of their projects is that they fully develop their own images: from concept to the final product. Keep an eye on their Facebook or Instagram pages: they are often looking for people who would like to model for a mural.
The mural at the Nieuwe Emmasingel makes you think about love. Is love forever and the most important part of life or does it fade away when the other is no longer there?
Dream away with your loved one with this mural.
