technic : mineral paint on lime
titlte : metamorphose
size : about 15 x 3.50
commissioned by the bijenkorf , to be seen at customerservice
the idea is to portray the mentality of the rotterdammer(no-nonsense and hard working)merging into the shapes of well-known buildings in the city.. the total image has the shape of a butterfly as a symbol of renewal
four school yards
titlte :vrijheid, vrede,
size : space around the four schools
the assignment was to clarify the confusion that existed with the different entrances of the schools and to make it a nice, usable,safe environment that everyone can be happy with
together with the children and people from the area we have given the squares names ( freedom,peace, friendship,trust )
with these thoughts we have made drawings...., I have translated this into organic game forms on the square
in the evening small lights go on between the tiles, a kind of starry sky shines up
safe elements have been made in the same round shapes,such as a sandbox,play hill...
although it was an assignment, here a very high degree of freedom in design was given in a very nice collaboration
entrance and interior
title : bookmark
size : entrance, corridors,
6 elevator doors, hanging lamps , wall lighting , walls,ceiling
the challenge was to inspire people to walk into the library.
and ones inside , to provide clarity in an attractive way where everything is
I took the bookmark as a thought .
in dutch this word ( bookmark ) means something that gives direction ,or kan mean: page/wise , or it is the same word for leaf
so this became the symbol I used
the blades on the doors of the lift point the point up or down
through the corridors,lighting leads you further upwards.
speciallydesigned , hanging lamps and wall lamps with the same theme
at the entrance the pained image forms a whole with the ceiling.
the theme of the bookmark can alsobe seen here
in the ceiling LED lights can be seen as small bright spots.
the image ( that symbolizes : knowledge is power ..) enters into the library with you.
when you walk out side it looks at you ..
tittle : morgenwandeling
size : 12 m x 4 m
technic :mineral paint on concrete panel
the wallpainting was restored in may/june 2019,almost 20 years afte its creation (more information about the story in the hall : life and work (2)
many local residents from them have moved
also the new neighbours embrace the painting.
it is importantto live in an environment that makes us happy
the forms are made of cement panel
the monumental forms can stand outside or inside .
painted with special homemade mineral paint they can withstand wind and weather.
the images can be attached to something but can also stand independently in the space.
the city of hoorn in north hollandhad commissioned artists to paint concrete horses( among others rob scholte )
these were exhibited in the city .
later they were auctioned.
the proceeds are for a children's home in ghana
at the famous glass blower in leerdam the design for the Uitblinker is made
mar-jon received this assignment from the municipality.
it had to be an annual change cup.
a prize for the best horeca(hospitality business) firm.
every year the name of the winner was engraved in the cup.
the idea is the colors of the flag of the city and the shapes symbolize plate, glass and human.
size : approx 10 x 2.50
four outside sutters
technic : oilpaint and varnish
the order for the shutters comes from the interpreneur from the lamp shop in the centre of vlaardingen.
the idea is to make the look positive and to show in a funny way which shop is behind the shutters when they are closed.
