Artist Stefaan De Croock reinvents the phrase "when one door closes another opens" through his creation of door murals, which are constructed and displayed on the exterior of brick buildings.

When each installation is complete, it reveals the silhouette of a human face made out of mixed and matched pieces of old doors. The puzzle-like patterns use a variety of colors and geometric shapes.

The door murals are part of a collection called 'Elsewhere' that can be interpreted by the viewers and the passersby on the street in whatever way they please. Essentially, the title of this collection gives the doors a new purpose and speaks on their behalf. Instead of being tossed aside, the doors are given a new life, not in a junkyard but elsewhere -- such as being displayed on buildings.
