Hannekes Boom is one of the nicest waterfront café in Amsterdam to have a beer when it's sunny. Close to Central Station, the place isn't crowded by tourists, but you need to be there early to get a seat.
The NewWerktheater is a café-restaurant venue located in Oostelijke Eilanden. Everything has been carefully selected/designed/created by ...,staat, the design studio behind the concept. The coffee beans are from Bonanza Berlin, the beer is made by Noam, and can only be found here in the Netherlands and the artworks are made by designer/artist Eike König. The location also regularly host creative events like the Dutch Art Director Club conferences, photography exhibitions or Creative Mornings.
Hi I’m Luca. I live and work in Amsterdam, from a small atelier full of colors in an old naval warehouse. During my days I draw space rockets, fantastic creatures, imaginary characters and fast cars, turning them into toys.
On a hazy morning is a unique photography team with a fresh and playful eye for capturing the things we all love. Husband and wife team Andres and Joyce specialize in both commercial and editorial storytelling.
Eternally curious, and with a passion for sustainability and green projects, they scour the globe seeking authentic moments and characters to create rich photographic narratives in a cinematic style, with magical light and lots of detail.
When home in canal-side Amsterdam, they enjoy nature walks, home-made vegan pizzas, Twin Peaks, their cats and the fine, fine eye candy films of Wes Anderson.
Iam currently working in Amsterdam. Inspired by the pop-culture, folk art, pound shops and tumblr, fascinated by inventions, colour, movement and compositions. She designs & conceptualises for both cultural and commercial fields. Whether in the digital realm or on a three-dimensional scale, she combines different disciplines and mediums to build engaging experiences.
Popel Coumou lives and works in Amsterdam and studied photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Her work consists out of analog photographs of collaged spaces that hint at human presence. Through her use of lighting she transforms the collages into 3 dimensional spaces that seem both natural and unhinged.
The work of Amsterdam based visual artist Martijn Sandberg, constantly explores border areas, such as the tension between text and image, legibility and illegibility, the private and the public domain. “I make Image Messages, image is message is image.” The image hides the message. In the cut paintings „Sorry No Image Yet‟ and „Too Busy To Paint‟ there is a subtle play between the language of the image and the significance of the image, and this gives rise to questions.
Here, the lack of image seems to be elevated to an image by the artist. The direct relationship between the image, the material bearing the image and the environment is also expressed in his site-specific works in public space and architecture. As in „If These Walls Could Speak‟ that can be viewed in the lifts at the OBA Public Library Amsterdam, and the artwork „I Will Survive' located at the border of a burial ground in Hardenberg, The Netherlands. In 2010 „My Last Penny‟ by Martijn Sandberg is released as jaarpenning/ art medal 2010, issued by the Vereniging voor Penningkunst/ Dutch Art Medal Society in a multiple edition of 450 pieces.
