About the artwork

This mural on the corner of Volmarijnstraat and Claes de Vrieslaan was realized in the 'Mooi, Mooier, Middelland' program, a project in which residents, entrepreneurs and the municipality of Rotterdam work together to improve the neighborhood. The painting was created by artist Sidi el Karchi and has the title The Nomad. El Karchi has painted a young nomad with a clear night full of stars around him, like in the desert. He looks ahead to the future. This artwork fits the diversity of the Middelland district and its youth culture.
