“With LOVE shall nations be built…”
My last project of 2015 was a mural for INSP!, a youth run culture house in Roskilde, Denmark. My good friend Peter Bensted of World Wide Walls asked me to help create a new mural for on the exterior of the INSP! facility that would welcome people from all over, and give a much needed face-lift to the previous wall paintings.
We had a sit down with some locals and planned the mural, and came up with the idea to use a classic quote, but put a twist on it.
This new mural in at INSP! uses a familiar play on words to Danish people. The inscription atop the courthouse in Copenhagen says:
“MED LOV SKAL MAN LAND BYGGE” (With law shall a nation be built.”)
Coincidentally, the Danish word “lov” (English: law) when made plural is spelled “love.” The obvious double-entendre has been used before by hip hop group Organiseret Riminalitet.
You can see some progress shots on the the local newspaper, SN.dk.
