Tell us about the Dinamo x Shortnotice MURAL you just painted in Paramaribo!
To celebrate our new collaboration, we commissioned a mural in the center of Paramaribo, the capital of Suriname. In general, painted advertisements are on almost every commercial building of Suriname—it’s just as common as printed billboards.
We’ve long admired these murals, and Mathias has worked locally on them before, while also collaborating with a nearby restaurant and chicken farm. We’ve always appreciated how these murals are based on digital designs with popular fonts and 3D effects, and we were looking for an opportunity to create one as Shortnotice. And so, we designed the Dinamo mural and commissioned Fabian de Randamie to bring it to life.
Fabian is THE billboard painter in Paramaribo and we were thrilled that we got to work with him. He and his brothers, Rayen and Guillermo De Randamie, painted the design in four days. First, they drew the letters with a sharpie, and then they filled them with colors and shadow. We learned a lot about the craft of mural painting from collaborating with them.
