Since our chance meeting, I have been following Merijn Kavelaars, and he has rocked the Amsterdam Art scene with his explosive paintings that bear resemblance to street art but are different. Always colourful and meant to provoke, just as he is in person. Check out his ‘Dirty Men’ series as well as his ‘Family Snavel’ portraits. Having moved from his atelier on the canals, Merijn will host a grand opening of his new Kavelaars Gallery on the second floor of Magna Plaza, this Wednesday August 3rd.

Co-hosted by Red Bull and Stoli Vodka, it will prove to be a blast. Cakes by Christi Taartjesmaker, music by Hitmeister Pim.

Date: August 3thrd
Location: Magna Plaza
