The Youth department of the City of Ghent partnered with Wallin’ to create a child-friendly spot at Karel Rymhofplein square. Artist Resto made a design with large colourful planes which allow children to choose their own playing opportunities. The airplanes represent children’s fantasy and the ‘anything is possible’ principle.
This Uruguayan duo created a mural at the entrance of nursing home Zonnebloem in cooperation with Wallin’. The residents had a say in the design: a grandad, a mom and a grandchild against a royal blue background. It fits in perfectly with the location, boasting a school, a day-care centre, assisted living residences and a care home.
Day-care centre De Bijendans is housed in a former train station in Forelstraat. If you drive from Toekomststraat towards the railway bridge, you can’t miss the colourful cartoonish mural on the side wall of De Bijendans.
The AZ Maria Middelares hospital wanted to bring (local) art, sustainability and experiences together. The hospital joined forces with Wallin’ to give several rubbish bins on its site a colourful, attractive and creative look.
Mural in shades of green and blue.
The wall next to the foot and cycle path had already been embellished with a mural made by Steve Locatelli. This creation needed a facelift, however. In 2022, Rick Molyneux from Wallin’ painted a new artwork under the alias Magnus mori. Mr. Foreal added the lettering.
The square in front of the Albert Hein supermarket on Overpoortstraat used to be a grey corner. Now it is a very inspiring and colourful spot. The 200 m² pavement painting was created at the request of the owner and manager of the shopping centre in Overpoort.

Day-care centre Tierlantuin and the Rabot community workers joined forces, and the end result is a street-art tour for toddlers, peppered with stories written by local residents, parents of young children and young people from the neighbourhood. With this tour, they want to make street art accessible to families with young children. At the same time, up-and-coming artists get the chance to show their creations to a wide audience.
