Graphic Design Festival Breda.

Mural with Super-A and Rutger Termohlen in Breda for the Graphic design festival in Breda, NL.

The wall is inspired by the sinister history of the location, which used to be a graveyard for people that died from the plague (around 1515). Because of this the graveyard became unpopular, therefore the cemetery was used to bury the poor, children, soldiers and suicides. The children dancing around the rat, the spreader of the plague is a link to the children song ‘Ring around the Rosie’. Ring around the Rosie is a reference to the black sores that would appear on your body as part of the plague.
