Floor van het Nederend was up for the challenge. He delved into the art of Vincent van Gogh and selected Wheatfield with a Reaper as his favourite work. Floor used this painting as the inspiration for his own work, combining Vincent’s style with his own and adding a dose of skate culture. The result? A life-sized mural at Skatepark NOORD measuring 30 x 4 metres.
