Netherlandish artist Daan Botlek just finished some days ago this new mural in Rotterdam.
The wall, titled “Stepping Stone Rat Race” and curated by Operacles gallery depicts some of Botlek’s signature characters running across the  picture plane in an almost desperate race.
As in the rest of Botlek’s work, his characters are simple and often site-specific, and interact with the surrounding architectural elements in unexpected ways creating the illusion of volume and bringing them to life in balanced and flowing sequences.
