Coat of Arms Amsterdam

During If Walls Could Speak 10 international and nationally recognized artists used the Platanenweg as their canvas to create 10 stunning murals. 10 murals with 10 stories, all within the theme: Amsterdam for Everybody.

Dutch Kash & Chuck both started with graffiti many years ago. We wanted a wall that included this art style, after all the precursor of street art. For us, no one could do that better than this duo. The result is overwhelming. Kash & Chuck managed to paint the biggest coat of arms of Amsterdam, in the entire world! Nothing stands stronger for the theme Amsterdam for Everybody. And as Kash & Chuck say: het wapen verbroedert (the coat of arms fraternizes).

“Because we are allready working in the scene for such a long time, we know what we are capable of. A wall like this, we designed it on a post-it.” explains Chuck. “But seeing the result on such a huge scale; I’m a bit overwhelemd my self to be honest.” tells Kash. It’s the biggest wall they have done so far. “Making the coat of arms of Amsterdam on such a big mural (10×15 meters) is very different from doing the grafitti pieces we usually do. We feel honored. The dimensions and proportions need to be exactly right. Beginning with the coat of arms and later on filling it in with our typical grafitti style, really combines best of both worlds.”
