So I am back from Amsterdam… my trip was far too short, but it was, indeed, sweet.
Folks seemed to love the picture from the other day… “love evol” and thanks to one of my graffiti Flickr friends, I now know that the artist that created this image goes by the name of Fake.
He’s a Dutch artist, so not surprising I ran across his work in Amsterdam. I only wish I had come across more.
Here’s a nice little interview with him, as well as other images: http://www.world-graffiti.com/2009/09/fake-stencils-netherlands-holland-street-art/
He talks about his preference for using stencils because it allows him to be speedy in public places, and he also mentions how there are many places in Amsterdam where it’s essentially considered semi-legal to paint… construction sites, etc. Definitely under the bridge we came across…
No picture for me today… it’s only 8:30pm (but that means 5:30am Europe time) and I need to get to bed for work tomorrow. If you’re itchin’ for more photos, check out Fake’s photostream on Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lype/).
And speaking of Flickr, you can always check out my photostream there too: http://www.flickr.com/photos/oaktownart Send friends too please. Cheers!
Welcome home. FYI, while you were away, Polaroid announced that they would resume producing instant film!
