“A floating woman in a dove coloured cloth, blending with pigeons, whereby the pigeons are used as a symbol for freedom and the city of Amsterdam.”
Dutch duo Studio Giftig conquer the Netherlands and soon the world with their photo-realistic work. They always photograph their own models, resulting in a picture perfect style. They are true public favorites. If Walls Could Speak resulted in a wide variety of stories within the theme ‘Amsterdam for Everybody‘. But the artists have one thing in common: for them Amsterdam stands for freedom, believing in yourself, nostalgia and fraternization.
“The theme Amsterdam for Everybody to us means: Freedom for each individual in each possible way. We brought together this two typically Amsterdam associations together in one design. We painted a floating woman in a dove colored cloth, floating among the pigeons. The pigeons stand as a symbol for freedom and the city of Amsterdam. The floating lady resembles the same. Because she is floating, she is not attached to any obligations or expectations. She feels one with the pigeons and slowly takes on their colour.”
