Dutch Artists Paint a Stunning Bookshelf Mural

We love a good mural, and if it involves an inspiring message all the better! Jan Is De Man, an artist from the Netherlands, together with
street artist Deef Feed, painted a stunning mural bookcase on an apartment building in the city of Utrecht.

“The first idea was to paint a smiley. A very big smiley. Because I believe people become happier when they see a smiley every day. But this idea didn’t feel complete, it felt too simple,” he said.

“I studied the shape of the house and the location where this house stands in and suddenly the idea of making a huge bookcase hit me. I love making illusions on walls and I like to see smiles on people’s faces and this idea (I thought meanwhile) could bring all this together,” he continued.

We think this couldn’t have turned out better!
