My inspiration came from a 100 years’ old piece of decor that was found during the renovation of the building, of the iconic Casino Cinema into the Foodhall. I gave my own twist to this uniquely discovered piece of art and filled the fantasy landscape with elements of the old cinema. During my research I met Yvonne van Duuren, who worked at the cinema for 34 years. She is depicted at the right of the painting. She told me the visitors were always very intrigued by the light that came from the old projectors. All this information gave me a lot of visual inspiration and brought me to this final result.
