Graffiti and street art on the streets of #Amsterdam

Here are some of the gems that I found whilst cycling around Amsterdam for two weeks. Some of these artists I know, some I don’t, but it’s all really great work!

Once again, I have to reiterate that there is so much of your city to discover if you just keep your eyes open. Cultural activities don’t require tickets. All you need is a keen sense of direction, a bike or a walking shoes, a camera, and a curious nature. Art is free! It’s on your walls! Go discover it!


Someone blighted her face. FOR SHAME.


Is that an Ewok? YUB-NUB!


A day without laughter is a day wasted…. I dunno, sometimes a cry feels pretty good.


I don’t know “Karma” but I like that idea.


Boxhead is quite literal.


Why, it’s KID ACNE! I’ve blogged his work before in London! He’s very YAY!


See her?


See her? DO YA?


Don’t mess with her, she’s bad to the bone.


Great job Kid Acne!


Tyler the Creator is terrifying.


Haha, there’s a Dutch joke in here. “Albert Heijn” (pronounced HINE) is the name of a supermarket in The Netherlands. So, here they have Albert Heijnstein! WOCKA WOCKA WOCKA. They even changed E=mc(squared) to E=ON(squared)… the “ON” is the logo for the Albert Heijn “on the go” basic shops.


It’s FAILE! I haven’t seen Faile’s work since Brooklyn! No idea she (he?) had been over here. Ok, I don’t know if Faile is male or female… that rhymes.


This image is really pretty.


Even prettier when you take into the account the gorgeous building it’s on.


Sexist graffiti. Not a fan. I don’t enjoy this. NEXT.


YES. That’s better.


See it?


Because it’s torn, there’s no way to know if it said “should” or “could.” I think both are apropos.


Bust?


MAC?


I’m on the fence about this one.


I saw a lot of Fabrice’s work in Amsterdam, and I chose not to photograph it all because it seemed to be commissioned. I’m more of a fan of spontaneous art, rather than state-sanctioned art, but that doesn’t mean it’s not pretty and well-done.


WOOF!


Erm….


Uh…


Hey look it’s Albert Heijnstein! He’s even wearing a jersey and carrying a bag with the supermarket’s logo on it.


Somewhat decent.


This kid is the supermarket superhero, apparently.
