The Lijnbaan is a national monument and designed as a pedestrian valley within the city. However, this valley now consists of buildings with grey rooftops and a lot of air conditioning units. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to create a green valley in the heart of the city? At our request, artist Leon Keer created an image of a livelier Lijnbaan. The paint for this project was sponsored by Rotterdam-based Simonis Verf.
During his career Leon Keer often presented his art by live-action-painting performances. His ability of performing as a street painter, lets him share the joy of painting with the public. At this moment Leon Keer is a world leading artist in the anamorphic street art. The 3d street paintings are temporary but the images are shared via social media all over the world.
He says: ‘Every street art piece is unique and belongs to the street and its residents, the temporary fact about this artform strengthens its existence’.
