Street art Amsterdam

During my recent trip to Amsterdam, I had an opportunity to go on a 10 mile run through the streets and around canals. I also managed to spot some interesting street art during the run. The photo above showing a stencil of Bob Marley is by noted artist Christian Guemy.

The photo above shows the impermanence of street art. This large mural was painted by a Dutch collective of artists in late 2014. According to previous photos online, in 2014-2015 there was a grassy lot next to the mural. Now the mural is about to be hidden by a new building on Amsteldijk street.
