Fri 29 Nov

Karla Corazon for All City Canvas:

"The Rotterdam duo created the 15th mural for All City! The Dutch duo Bier En Brood (Koen Harmsma and Jelmer Noordeman, Illustration 2010) created a monumental mural on 211 West 29 St in Manhattan, New York. This piece is the 15th mural of the All City Canvas Global Series. Yay!

This mural joins the international circuit of our great family, with artists such as Interesni Kazki, Saner, Sego, Escif, D*Face, Vhils, Agostino Iacurci, It’s A Living, El Mac, Roa, Herakut and many more to come.

The concept of the wall made by Bier En Brood is focused on the energy that passes through the building. A portal to another world. The artists describe it as “a metaphor for New York City, a place that takes you to an almost unreal world, where anything can happen.” The mural also plays with the viewer’s perspective. Depending on what angle you see it from, and the way the energy flows, the piece will inevitably capture you!

Who are Bier En Brood?

Let us tell you about the natural talent these artists have. Born in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands, these two illustrators have dedicated their lives to creating. They’ve done extraordinary pieces around the world, and their last mural is no exception.

Their creations are inspired by machines, nature, and architecture. This is how they create unique pieces with a somewhat sinister and apocalyptic style. So cool! They’re clearly lovers of contrast, Koen Harmsma and Jelmer Noordeman create an awesome union between their drawings and black and white lines. Creating unmatched pieces, worthy of being admired from any angle."
