Favela Painting Foundation

A good part of the outside and inside of Lola Lik will be blessed with mural art by the Favela Painting Foundation. The aim of the foundation is to create striking artworks in places where people are being socially excluded.

Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn (Haas&Hahn) founded the Favela Painting Foundation. The name is based on their first project in Rio de Janeiro, for which a square was reinvigorated together with local residents using colourful street art.

Their work, characterised by large, colourful, geometric wall paintings, can already be seen at the refugee centre to the north of the former Bijlmerbajes prison complex. Lola Lik will be transformed in a similar fashion to create a pleasant environment for its users and the inhabitants of the refugee centre.
