Helped by the local art students, Daan Botlek recently finished this massive intervention on the Palace Road in Bangalore, India. Invited by the St+art India project, the artist and his team of helpers spent couple of day tackling this beast of a wall and turning it into a playful image.

Dutch artist that has been known for taking an unusual approach to creating public art found an original way to intervene with this unusual wall measuring 150m in length. Constantly aiming to include the given elements into his work, he actually figured a great concept to interact with the white/blue stripes covering the wall on the side of bustling road. Greatly helped by the students of Shrishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, the team worked through harsh conditions in order to complete this unique piece. Using the stripes as both background and foreground color, Botlek came up with the idea of Domino first, and evolved into other concepts which were continuing the original concept.

Growing up skateboarding I always enjoyed board graphics, Toy Machine adds and art section in Thrasher magazine. Around that time I started flirting with graffiti which eventually lead to appreciating street and urban art. Few years later I ended up with an Internet based job. Too much online time on my hands resulted in getting involved in art related forums, and finally writing for various art websites.
