Last month we finalized the second part of the “Kantje Pikken” project in IJmuiden. We proudly show you the result of these new murals made by artists Karski & Beyond and SMATES.

Last year artist duo Bier en Brood already made two spectaculair painting in the harbor area of IJmuiden. For this second part we worked with Karski and Beyond and with SMATES from Belgium. All murals are made in commission of the municipally of Velsen. From a well described brief from the art committee of Velsen, we curated and presented artist portfolio’s matching the brief. From this portfolio list the art committee and the municipally of Velsen has chosen the artist to execute their sketch.

The art committee of Velsen selected the walls and even knowing that IJmuiden got a lot of grey empty warehouse walls it was a pretty big hassle to convince the property owners to let these well known artists create something spectaculair on their wall. Luckily they found another very cool wall on the route to the sea at the Ohmstraat. Check out the result of artist SMATES below.

For the project “Kantje Pikken” we have worked with the local paint factory / supplier RIGO Verffabriek, Lifts from Cornelissen B.V. Timmerbedrijf Jonkman who trusted us to create something stunning on his wall. L’amuse for using their storage room and giving us the possibility to have some nice food and coffee. Special shout out to Sige Bart who’s originally proposed this initiative to the municipally of Velsen.

For those who never heard about IJmuiden…

Visit their beach, walk around the harbour, eat some fresh fish and enjoy these new colorful artworks.

For ASA and the more than 400 connected artists, it’s a welcoming challenge to collaborate in a creative way.
