This is a graffito in Amsterdam, its location is a tunnel close to my place. It’s part of a whole group of graffiti made on the same day, I witnessed the whole thing! This is probably my favourite, I even put it into a calendar I created for my friends and family. The tunnel is here in case you want to check it out.
Here we are: the last chapter of the Valparaiso trilogy. The topic will be… (drumroll!) … its Elevators!
Built long time ago to help the lazy rich climb up the hills, they still take you all the way up for an insignificant price. Some of them do it almost vertically! This is the view from the elevator that used to take me to my friend Mauro’s bakery shop & house.
Some time ago, I was cycling back home in Amsterdam, and I decided to take a slight detour to pass somewhere else for a change. As I approached the tunnel below the railroad, I saw a lot of unusual activity there. It turns out that the people from the nearby squat Op de Valreep had organized a day to decorate the tunnel mentioned above.
After painting the wall in a light-blue, neutral color, each street-artist got a section of it and began his work. Colors, beer and orange juice the most important tools.
