About the artwork

Since 2017, there has been a painting made by Wild Drawing (WD) on the corner of Coolsestraat and West-Kruiskade. The title of the work is Helixotherapy; heliox is a gas mixture of helium and oxygen and is used in people with breathing difficulties. Perhaps it refers here to the painted bust, which is made of a curly ribbon applied in a 3D perspective. The classic face faces the busy shopping street. Above the head, WD has painted a hole, making it look like you can see the sky. Curves have been painted under the windows in the facade, so that the wall appears to have a concave. Wild Drawing may have been inspired by the Dutch artist MC Escher when he made this painting.
