Project Amsterdam Street Art 22-26 June - Amsterdam

(Inter)national street artists in Amsterdam
Project Amsterdam Street Art / 22-26 june 2011

After the successful Project Amsterdam Street Art 2010, Amsterdam Street Art Foundation organizes her second street art event in Amsterdam this year. Project Amsterdam Street Art (ASA) will take place during the last weekend of June (22-26 June). (Inter)national artists are coming to Amsterdam for paint jams, exhibitions and of course to leave their trademark on the Amsterdam streets.

In collaboration with our partner Unfold Magazine, ASA gives young street art talent the
opportunity to exhibit their work in The Thought Gallery. The GO Gallery is where the wellestablished
street art artists exhibit their work. The Bellamyplein is just like last year the windows gallery for art as seen from streetview. Café De Duivel has a street art in Amsterdam photography

Besides the exhibitions, the program has an Amsterdam street art tour and workshops as
organized by Alltournative. The invited artists will also be taken outside for paint jams on murals and billboards. Such as: Pand 14 (Holendrecht), Prinsengracht wall, three outside frames at Cafe Belgique (tbc - hotspot of The London Police), three billboards at Sloterdijk area and a mural on Bellamyplein (tbc). With a little bit of luck again the I Amsterdam is, just like last year, given a new coat at this year’s event.

Our two gems from the ASA All Stars exhibition are Btoy from Spain and Klone from Israel. Both
artists have already earned their spurs with shows and mural paintings far away from their
homecountr. Project ASA has premiere with KBTR (Gnome) from Utrecht, as he has never
exhibited in a gallery before. On Saturday 25th June you should keep a close eye on the Amsterdam canals. Guildor from Italy is on a mission to do something with 'urban intervention'. We are very pleased with the return of Orticanoodles. Last year they were also present at Project ASA. This years line-up has a lot of street art artists from the Netherlands. Such as:, Ottograph, DHM, Ox-alien (Last Plak crew) and the already mentioned KBTR.
