A multi material artist and fond of shapes, Jane likes to be open whether working in paint or ceramics. For Jane with the signature MIKO, her thoughts were to pay tribute to the culture in Løkken – and her words of inspiration for the big wall on Erik Larsen’s path were heat, sun, wind, seagulls, fish bathers, ball games and children. Also as a sign of the times, corona virus has had a little mention on the wall too. Signs and decorative stones in Jane’s characteristic style can also be found along the trail.

He won’t finish a piece until it looks just as he can see it with his own eyes. For this project John has painted two more murals along the secret paths.

She is also behind countless other decorated stones, signs and cement creations. Inspired by nature, the sky, sea and coast, Zita almost dreams of colours and shapes.
Storm og Øjvind
Twelve year old Storm and his father Øjvind with their urban style and consistent expressions in marker and acrylic, have put fantastic shapes on a window section at the school – incorporating motifs from the sea and life in the forest, as well as drawing a fable about pollution. In addition they have transformed a boring, rusty old chimney into a beautiful fisherman, who stands by the Strand Pavilion and looks out over the sea. All subjects can potentially form part of their collective creativity.
