In celebration of the new central station renowned street artist Ben Eine (London, 1970) was invited to work on the underpass at the Markkade and Belcrumweg in Breda. Eine claims there is a clear distinction between graffiti and street art. To his opinion graffiti makes the streets ugly ,while street art beautifies it. He knows from experience as he had been tagging trains and walls since the age of 14.

At some point Eine felt existing graffiti artists were creating designs that were entirely similar and therefore lacked interest. He wanted to do something different. He was always interested in letters and how they could change shape when combined into words, so this is the direction he took.

Eine’s typographical works appear in Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles, Berlin and other metropolitan cities. For his mural in Breda he got inspiration from the old and vanished industry at the site. Instead of referring to history the words “Meaningful”, “Imagineer”, “Mesmerising”, “Storytelling” celebrate the present and future industry of Breda. The city is known as ‘City of Imagineers’ a home for many educational, cultural and commercial institutions in the creative industry.
