The Nomad (2018) Sidi el Karchi
This mural on the corner of Volmarijnstraat and Claes de Vrieslaan has been realized in the program 'Mooi, Mooier, Middelland', a project in which residents, entrepreneurs and the municipality of Rotterdam work together to improve the neighborhood. The painting is made by artist Sidi el Karchi and has the title The Nomad. El Karchi 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.
Sidi El Karchi (Sittard, 1979) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Maastricht. His work has been included in numerous (museum) collections, including Bonnefanten Museum Maastricht, Museum Van Bommel Van Dam Venlo and Schunck Heerlen. He lives and works in Maastricht.
