Mural Urban Jungle – A boy looking forward to his future in the city

The neighborhood has a beautiful new mural on Sarphatistraat. The work is by Tim Rodermans. A mural with a boy looking forward to his future. From a small safe environment to high school in the Urban Jungle of Amsterdam; what will the future bring him? Being one with the nature around us and ensuring an environmentally conscious attitude to life.

Contribute to the quality of life in the neighborhood
A mural is one of the ways to contribute to the attractiveness and quality of life of a neighborhood. Urban Jungle transforms the boring blank wall into an optimistic eye-catcher for residents and passers-by.

About the location of the mural
The buildings at Sarphatistraat 163 – 213 belong together. They were built in 1908 and designed by architect H.P. Berlage and have been a municipal monument since 2005. There was a corner building on the site of the mural, but it was demolished years ago. Now here is the passage from Sarphatistraat to the Roeterseiland Campus of the UvA.
