10 February 2017

a Street art museum in Amsterdam, we want to go!

OMG! Good news for all the street art addicts on this cold Friday afternoon. In the summer of 2018 the biggest street art museum in the world will open their doors in our little Amsterdam. You can’t make us any happier than that we are now!

The street art museum will be located in the Lasloods at NDSM-werf, a location you’re probably already familiar with. ‘Cause on the frontside of the building you can already see a huge portrait of Anne Frank. Everything makes sense, they’re giving us a little taste of the biggest street art museum in the world!

The street art museum will be huge, just like the portrait of Anne Frank. The surface of the Lasloods is in fact 7,000m². Twice as big as the Turbinehal at Tate Modern in London. That’s not all. All the works that will be displayed are also big. And by big we mean big! The smalles artwork right now is even bigger than the Nachtwacht (Night Watch). It’s 5 meters wide and 12 meters high.

They’ve already been working on the biggest street art museum in the world since 2015. That makes us wonder how you can keep this a secret… Anyway, all the works that will be showed are made especially for the museum by famous street art artists. Artists like Hoxxox from the United States, David Walker from England and Cranio from Brazil. The portrait of Anne Frank is made my Eduard Kobra.

It still takes a while, but us street art lovers are excited! We’ll keep you updated about the opening date. NICE!
