About the artwork

This painting by Daan Botlek was made on the back of the Kuhne & Co architectural office, located in Boomgaardsstraat. The wall is covered with wavy metal plates, which made it very difficult to apply the painting. The title of the work Principles of Organization refers to this challenging process, but also to the limited space available to Botlek. Due to various buildings, it is difficult to view the work as a whole. This wall painting was initiated by Rewriters010.
