Notre Temps Mural at Hankar Metro station

by Vincent

The wildly colorful “Notre Temps” fresco was painted on the ceilings and walls of the Hankar STIB Metro station by Roger Somville, leader of the Belgian Expressionists Movement. The mural uses a lot of bright and strident colors in shades of orange and red to represent the struggles of the working class to attain social and economic  justice. Somville completed this monumental mural in 1976 with the help of four of his assistants.
