Epic street art mural by the international renowned street-artist duo known as the London Police (TLP) in Amsterdam’s Jordaan neighborhood. The artwork features the circle-headed, smiley-faced TLP graphic character called “the Lad.”
We love this large stencil street art image of a black puma in Amsterdam Centrum, along Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal street with lots of street art that connect Centraal Station to the Western Canals District.
We like this large street art painting in Amsterdam’s Jordaan neighborhood of a man and a woman holding brooms, as if waiting to sweep up the mess of graffiti on the wall below them. We don’t know who the artist(s), but there a small “FUMS” tag in the lower right of the painting, so maybe that’s the artist. If you know, send us an email.
Street art and graffiti on a roller shutter at the Amsterdam offices of Sid Lee, a hip Canadian advertising agency, which occupy a sprawling warren of adjacent townhouses and storefronts in the trendy De Pijp neighborhood.
De Pijp is a popular — if overplayed — Amsterdam neighborhood among hipsters, tourists, and expats locals alike. Not that these are mutually exclusive tribes, mind you. It’s home to a huge, famous street market, cool advertising agency offices, great cafes and lots and lots of street art, including these paintings below.
It’s a bit crudely rendered and droll, but we like stumbling upon this stencil street art of an airplane in Amsterdam. The silhouette is positioned relative to a pair of yellow spray-paint strokes on a utility box, such that the lines appear like contrails off each wing.
“Bear Market” Street art in Amsterdam … Silhouette of a bear and girl on a building construction hoarding in central Amsterdam. This is part of a much larger commissioned street artwork that runs the length of a full city block. We like the phrases like “All systems go,” “Circus Love,” etc.. dotted around the work
More Amsterdam street art pix … Here a stencil painting on a wall in the city’s Nine Streets neighborhood, in the canal district. The guy in the image looks like Ghandi. The Dutch phrase is loosely translated as “Nothing beats Groningen,” which is a Dutch city far north of Amsterdam.
