I spent 10 lovely days of summer in Amsterdam biking and looking for street-art.
Even with some artistic references from others short trips that I did over there this year, I allowed myself to make this search in a very raw way, just biking and being surprised with each art works that I found on the streets. I also visited some galleries and exhibitions focused on Street-art.
I will make a new series of posts about street art in Amsterdam, starting with one exhibition that I joined at Go Gallery. The exhibition ends on August 26, but even with a short time to suggest you to visit it, I want to document and register this show that has a sharp curatorial work and high quality in each piece.
I also was really well received by one of the owners of the gallery, Mr. Farud Camabatta, who charmly and with passion presented me the concept of the show and the artists that the gallery represents.
Inside Outside exhibition shows what a few foreign and local artists think about Holland and Amsterdam in particularly. The Dutch Chesse maiden, Red light district, Maxima, Dutch haring, soft drugs, wooden shoes, canals, tulips, Beatrix, Gaypride, Dutch windmills, The Big 5: Rembrandt, Van Rijn , Vincent Van Gogh, Johannes Vermeer, Jan Steen, Frans Hals and other Dutch and Amsterdam stereotypes are pictured in the art work.
The collective exhibition presets 6 artists: Mr. Trash, Second and Emess from Germany, The London Police, Ives.One and Oliver Philippe from Amsterdam. The Netherlands, specially Amsterdam is world famous for its liberal way of thinking. Naturally this freedom is presented in this great show! If you are in Amsterdam this week I highly recommend you to visit Go Gallery.
