Amsterdam Street Art

Amsterdam- a city packed with some trippy people and some trippy street art. It’s funky and filled with wild colors. While being aesthetically pleasing, Amsterdam’s graffiti is also filled with political messages. Currently, the Amsterdam municipal government has attempted to decriminalize graffiti and make it more socially acceptable by creating legal opportunities to paint in specially designated areas. An example is Project ASA.

Look for the political slogans and faces in some of these pictures.
