Public Art in Almere Centrum Train Station

One of the things I love the most in the Netherlands is the Public Art.

These photos were taken in Almere Centrum Train Station.

In this case, all the colours give such a lifely sfeer to this usually grey place.

The author of these paintings is Margriet Maduro. She was born in Aruba in 1961. She began to paint in 1997. Art is for Margriet an important way to communicate, specially because she is deaf. She works mostly with acrylic. Her work's influence is her environment. Aruba is her great inspiration as well as her memories and daily events.

I must say to catch the train now is even more pleasant ;-) Thanks Margriet!

very cheerful!! I love how art goes out into the street and makes the surroundings so much more enjoyable here in the NL. Lovely!

Se todas as estações pudessem ter as cores e a beleza da arte o mundo seria melhor, ou viveriamos com mais colorido.
Gostei do ambiente festivo que a artista criou.
Bjs. :)
