Organizers of several successful weekend pop up stores in Amsterdam. The maincrew consists of Bustart, Zaira, Skatin Chinchilla, Karma83, Sket185.
Bustart (1983, Switzerland) creates many beautiful murals in Amsterdam. You can recognize him of his clean, colourful design and use of his stencils. His works contain mostly a critical opinion about society. In this way Bustart likes to give the observer something to think about. In addition to the murals he creates individual pieces which also have a tight design.
Bustart uses many techniques. He prefers to work on walls, which he edit with spray cans and markers. The designs he creates with the stencils can consist of many, many different layers. Previously we sold "The Raccoon Brothers" and “Spraycan Budda” by Bustart.
Zaira (1983, Switzerland) moved with Bustart to Amsterdam. The Spuistraat is one of the streets where you can see her work. Her style is very recognizable. She usually works with brightly colored animals such as birds and butterflies or she creates attractive female figures. The decorative elements around the figures make the piece a complete unit. She uses many different mediums such as acrylic, stencils, spray cans, oil and plaster. Actually, there is no medium that she doesn’t use. She adds lots of stencils to create multiple layers. This gives the work a nice depth.
Bustart and Zaira are a productive street art duo in Amsterdam. In the spring of 2014, they showcased their new collection in the GO Gallery (www.gogallery.nl). We already sold on streetart.nl the artwork “Flow” of Zaira.

This active artist makes collages, paintings, stencils, stickers and murals. In the meantime in Amsterdam he is known as an influential street artist who is inspired by hip-hop. He does not have a particular style, but is guided by music and culture, leading to new styles.
Karma83 (UK) is the girlfriend of Skatin’ Chinchilla. Since her childhood she loves to draw and sketch. Today she makes street art and she considers it a gift to make someone day more beautiful with her art. In Karma83’s artwork her passion of breakdancing, reggae, karma, hip-hop and peace come together. She uses these subjects often as themes.

Hugo Mulder (1972, Amsterdam) is a multifaceted artist with his own studio. He started with graffiti, but developed later as a graphic designer and painter which reflects in his murals and stickers.

Among others, he has worked for big names like O'Neill, Nike and Adidas.
His past-ups and stickers are typically known for the tattoo / tribal style which he uses to (mostly) create animals. His paintings with female beauty as a theme are also very recognizable. It is an abstract style in which he gives depth to faces and bodies by using many lines and different layers. In addition to the use of acrylics, he also does a lot of art prints, canvas and stencils. In May this year he had a great soloshow at the Original Dampkring Galery.
Lastplak, a group of several artists, has been around for over 10 years and is (primarily in Rotterdam) an established name in the streetart scene. Not only walls get a makeover, even on canvas, stickers, t-shirts and the walls in children's bedrooms they go wild. They mainly are busy with live painting at festivals, exhibitions and other events to celebrate. Because each member of Lastplak has its own style, combining several members gives a witty color explosion which you can keep looking at. They often work with themes and symbolism.
Carl Kenz (Germany) was inspired by graffiti artists who have more to offer than just placing a tag. In 2008 he founded his own company, ArsVivenda. Who thinks of Carl Kenz, thinks of his brutal creatures, "The Devmonz". These white demons come in various appearances; as care keeper, Bavarian buccaneer, iceman, karate kid and so on. Slowly "The Devmonz" take over the walls in the Netherlands and Germany. In addition, the fleshy sometimes pink, sometimes green tentacles come out of the wall to grab you, are characteristic elements of the murals of Kenz.

Also little wooden blocks with the bunny cartoons are popping up in the public places. You can find these funny bunnies especially on walls both in the Netherlands and in foreign countries.
