Dalata’s sweat and tears!

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

If you think that the artists painting these walls, are all as fast as Onio, Onesto and Yusk, you’re wrong. Some of them really work hard to get all the details and effects perfectly in shape…Dalata is one of them. He is sweating and suffering in his struggle to end his work on his wall in the Boomgaardhof. It isn’t easy now the weather is changing and wind and rain are bothering every now and then. The result though, is one we can enjoy for long…People are very entusiastic about the art and sit for hours to observe the mysteries Dalata hid in the painting…

It is always surprising what to expect when passing by at Dalatas wall. In the mornings he is never there. He starts in the late afternoon and prefers to paint at night. In Holland, there’s a law that you can’t make “noise” after 22hs. so Dalata had to adapt himself to the daylight. His sunglasses are permanently stuck on his face to create a certain superficial darkness. This time we where lucky and found him in higher atmospheres…

In the early days in Holland, there was another rule, which had to do with tax. Landowners only had to pay tax for the square meeters in the ground, not in the air…that’s why many buildings in Holland are very thin, but very high….
