An Abundance Of Street Art in Amsterdam.

Street Art in Amsterdam.

I’m still quite amazed at the sheer volume of street art there was to be found in Amsterdam. This marks my third blog post on the subject (you can view my first post here and the other here). I had no idea that Amsterdam played host to such a vibrant and thriving street art community!

I like this first one, as it’s cute and well … it’s true!

Not such a grand example of street art and written in English, hardly requires a Dutch translation, but I quite like the sentiment being expressed.

This one is dramatic, intricate and one of my favorites by far.

    Raaaaaad. I think I’ve told you this before, but… I love street art. The side profile of that kid reading the book is just so good.

      @Tristan – well at least one more post about street art in the ‘Dam is coming up! Stay tuned. 😉

      I also love that one with the kid reading the book … I like that whoever created has a sense of humor even if it’s a toilet styled sense of humor.

      @M – Thanks for your comment. As I really have no way to verify who the creators of this great work are, it’s always nice to know.
