It’s a very small museum in the Hermitage about art made by outsiders. It’s also known as ‘Art Brut’, a name given to it in 1972 by French artist Jean Dubuffet. It simply means that it is art made by people that don’t fit in the normal life structure that humans suppose to have. Which can mean that the art is made by people who are in jail, who are ill, have a mental dissability or another way of not fitting into the community. The exhibitions are quite small, so it takes you just around an hour. And the hermitage has a nice canal view.

I am a graphic designer based in Amsterdam. My work is conceptual as well as intuitive. I try to tell stories with my works, and to get the viewer into a contemplative state of mind. I believe in a refined way of designing, in which materials and typography are important elements. I like to wander and I’m curious about almost everything.

Just Indulge yourself with a glass of wine while watching a good movie. Really cute art deco movie theater in the Jordaan packed with film lovers. The rooms are not that big but the atmosphere is amazing.

Not a big fan of zoos and animals behind cages, but if you can spot Flamingos in the east-centre of Amsterdam, then count me in <3 ! You can actually see them while riding the bike on Plantage Middenlaan, quite a beautiful scene.  Note: De Plantage next to zoo is quite cool cafe/restaurant, with a mix of vintage style and industrial elements of the old buildings of Artis. Great atmosphere, and ideal for a more sophisticated outing.
