Here is a photo of one of my favourite pieces of local art. Or it was.

There’s been a lot of great new street art (stencil and other forms) appearing around here lately. This is one example I particularly liked and I had tried to photograph but wasn’t happy with the results. I was planning to have another go …. Luckily I didn’t actually delete the shots I wasn’t happy with because now, it is gone. Scrubbed off and painted over in what I’m sure someone sees as a job-well-done but that really, under the circumstances, strikes me as vandalism.

And speaking of vandalism, Amoir has alerted me to Paint and Beer, a stencil art party in Amsterdam October 15-17th that looks like it may also be very productive. For more on Amsterdam street art take a look at Nicole Blommers blog.
