Monday Mural

In 2011, a proposal was made to name the station after Dutch actor and singer Ramses Shaffy, a longtime resident of the Vijzelgracht neighbourhood. The municipal government decided to retain the Vijzelgracht name under the policy of naming stations after their locations. However, the city invited artists to create a work of art dedicated to Shaffy in the metro station. On 23 February 2013, Liesbeth List announced on the Dutch television programme "Opium" that an portrait of Ramses Shaffy, interwoven with map lines of the Metro, was designed at the metro station, designed by Dutch artist Marjan Laaper.

The fun is you can watch the making of the portrait again and again.

Because it is built up with the lines over and over again.

  5. Hello Marianne!
    That’s a brilliant idea !
    Lovely pictures and i like this digital portrait!

  6. een begrijpelijke beslissing vind ik..

    in Brussel hebben ze bepaalde stations wel naar personen genoemd...

    maar dat geeft geen aanduiding over de plaats waar men zich bevindt

    knappe foto's Marianne
