Painting of the Transvaaltunnel, Amsterdam.120 meter , titled: "World without frontiers". In 1985 the municipality of Amsterdam asked Hugo for a visual solution for a pedestrian tunnel at the Transvaalquarter of the city. As the neighbourhood was populated by a mix of cultures from Surinam, Turkey, Morocco and Amsterdam natives Kaagman was requested to melt his styles in a recognizable atmosphere that could prevent vandalism and promote integration.
