Focus | 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 he takes us along the vibrant work called Focus.

Two big events during this year's fall did not follow through due to the well-known circumstances. The Dutch Design Week quickly found a solution by presenting their event online.

Light Festival GLOW is an event that can only be experienced in real life but during this period, groups of interested visitors are a big no right now.

However, there is a new piece of light art to admire in Eindhoven: underneath the highway A2 at the Welschapsedijk created by Motion Paintings.

Motion Paintings is an Amsterdam-Eindhoven collective and has installed work in Eindhoven before at a walkway at Strijp-S. The collective creates visual stimulating installations that bring two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects to life with the help of light installations.

Their work Focus is inspired by microscopic phenomenon after an excursion at Thermo Fisher Scientific; an Eindhoven-based company that produces electron microscopes.

The various color layers in the mural are brought to life by the continuously changing LED-lights.

This mural is a permanent part of the Tunnelvisie-project by the city of Eindhoven and is supported by GLOW Eindhoven.

So, if you started to miss GLOW this year: go and have a look at the Welschapsedijk but keep a 1,5 meters distance from each other. Or check it out here.
