Amsterdam Part I
Known to be one of the richest cities in the world, my first stop was Amsterdam. I wanted to start my trip here primarily because of the vibrant urban and unique villages that make its location in Europe like no other. In addition to its unique settings, its acceptability of normal laws are unlike any other locations or that’s what I thought. I found that Amsterdam’s metropolis had an interesting approach towards the street art scene; they try to decriminalize the activity by creating legal opportunities for artists. They provide artists places to paint in specific locations in the city, which are essentially “free-zoned” wall spaces. Although the given spaces didn’t necessarily restrict graffiti to specific areas, it does provide the opportunity for the community of Amsterdam to appreciate the vibrant mural pieces.
