Local Artist Helps Put Curaçao on a Global Stage with Vibrant Miami Mural
Inspired by its own burgeoning street art scene, the Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) is making a splash in Miami with a larger-than-life mural in the heart of Wynwood. With the eclectic street art that has emerged over the last two years in the nation’s capital of Willemstad, the CTB and its North American PR agency, Diamond PR, enlisted the help of established creative and local Curaçaoan, Sander van Beusekom, to design and paint an original piece that will be displayed in Wynwood in anticipation of Art Basel 2019. The annual event typically draws a crowd of more than 40,000 attendees and prominent celebrities, in addition to the everyday foot traffic in the flourishing area. The 40’ x 18’ mural serves as a play on the island’s global branding campaign. The vibrant colors – a kaleidoscope of tangerine, sunny yellow, sky blue, indigo and fuchsia – draw directly from CTB’s style aesthetic, while the graphics represent the best that Curaçao has to offer, from its friendly locals to its splashy marine life. Read more.
