Belgian basketball court refreshed with mural based on colourful toy blocks
Beautiful mural from artist Katrien Vanderlinden featured on dezeen.
Vanderlinden’s Ezelsplein mural is based on a children’s mathematical reasoning game named Logical Blocks, which comprises squares, rectangles, triangles and circles, in different shapes, sizes and colour.
Inspired by these shapes, she added triangles, circles and rectangles in between the traditional court markings – creating spaces for the local children to play other games.
Block colours in hues of blue, yellow and pink were chosen to fill in the shapes, as an “ode” to the bold and graphic Memphis art movement.
