New Walls, Illegal Interventions and the first Street Game. Take a look into the artworks that were made in the streets of Amsterdam Nieuw-West and close to Schiphol in 2015.
PEZ's Happiness Mural means a lot to our collection because this is the 2nd artwork from the great master who appears in "Exit through the Gift Shop" with is classic Blue Fish.
MORCKY is an Italian illustrator and street artist, a philosopher, a writer and a very witty guy in general. His art is a mix of abstract forms with figurative elements. In this case- find a salami!
NAFIR is an upcoming Iranian artist, who made his European debut at NUART festival in Norway. His ninja breaking the Facebook Like sign has gone viral instantly.
STINKFISH is considered to be one of the top 50 graffiti artists living today. His technique of using fat cap, expressive use of colours and original imagery adds a lot of impact to our streets.
This portrait by Colombian artist Stinkfish shows a father and his child. The artist carries his camera everywhere he goes to take pictures, which he later translates into stencils. Fatherhood tells a story of the predominantly Muslim fathers in the area and challenges the stereotype that they are not involved in the upbringing of the children.
OAKOAK is a French artist who works with multi-media and situational artworks normally based on or inspired by cartoons. But with Office Walk with a Twist project it was all about a cupcake and fans.
Catch a Bunny was the first of SAMA street games, whereby those who would find all of the bunnies and letters, would win a museum card for 1 year.
Every year the Street Art Museum Amsterdam throws a freedom dinner at the 5th of May, Liberation Day. This year there was a Barbecue for all the people in the neighbourhood, with music and bike-painting workshops for the children.
