The colorful mural entitled: “The First Date Mural” is the work of artist Olivier Binamé aka Oli-B. Commissioned at the request of the residents neighborhoods committee it was painted on a wall of a house recently purchased by five young fans of the artist.
The First Date mural is located at the corner of rue du Tocsin & rue Jenneval, Brussels, Belgium
“The purpose of the painting here was to make people dream. The abstract composition allows each spectator to come up with they very own interpretation. For me, it was a search for a balance between shapes and colors”.Oli-B
Regarding the street art, Olivier Binamé went on to say that Brussels had in the past too long remained frozen on the theme of comic strips murals which left little space for anything else. And of course, compared to other capitals, we are a good decade behind! But luckily things are changing and several people working within the city of Brussels cultural affairs have been opening up the space to graffiti artists which is quite exciting for us.
