Street Art

Amsterdam has some wonderful street art.

While I was walking around the other day I came upon a street that had a gallery full of wonderful pieces, and I thought I’d share some of them with you.

I really like the way the collection takes what could have been a dull and very industrial street, and turns it into a gallery of pieces which add colour and movement, drawing your eyes down the street from one piece to the next.

I really enjoyed them and how they brightened my day!

There is a real talent to being able to spray paint with finesse.

I hope your day is full of colourful surprises too!

  1. Great post and interesting examples of street art. I love the Ronald McDonald one, but my favourite is probably the panther. Amazing what can be done with spray paint.

    Is there a lot of street art spread throughout the cities? Or is it restricted to the industrial centers, with only smaller examples in the rest of the city? How does the quantity compare with where you lived before? Or do you think you notice it more as you’re looking at a new(er) city?

    1. There are bits and pieces throughout Amterdam, predominantly on newer buildings, which in Amsterdam isn’t that many. 🙂

      Sydney was pretty similar. It’s in patches rather than all over.
