As much as I love a good whirl about the Rijks, artistic inspiration can be found in many places, from a world-class national museum to an inconspicuous little gallery on the Prinsengracht. Two weeks ago, I went to see a funk-cool installation curated by the Chaotic Bastards, a Dutch foursome who called for digital street art submissions around Europe. Artists uploaded their work to Instagram with the hashtag #GreenLabelGallery, and the Chaotic Bastards chose their favorites.
The project was dubbed The Green Label Gallery exhibition, and was hosted at The Walls Gallery here in Amsterdam.
It was a beautiful Saturday night in Amsterdam, and I showed up expecting a high brow artsy event. What greeted me was far more appropriate for a Saturday evening – a hip DJ spinning tunes, cocktails, mini burgers, and lots of fresh street art.
You can check out all the work on the Green Label website, here. This guy below was my favorite :)
