We visited Antwerp over the weekend. It had been a while, and it was nice to see a new mural gracing the walls of the Boerentoren. This is getting to be a tradition in Belgium, and Antwerp can’t afford to be left behind here.
The mural is executed by Jan vander Veken (who earlier also did a mural in Turnhout), and illustrates the great diversity that at multicultural city like Antwerp has to offer.
If only more dull grey slabs of concrete would be decorated like this, what joy this city (or any city, for that matter) would be.
Anyway, just to prove that Vander Veken is also a keen caligraphist, here’s a close-up of his signature.
