The Red Mice District
Sexy mice characters occupying the Amsterdam Red Light District Welcome to The Red Mice District: an alternate world by artist Luiz Risi, teeming with sexy characters, which currently live in the Red Light District area. In the narrow streets where the city never sleeps, rodent pin-up girls in risqué outfits inhabit a new layer between the sex shops and strip clubs of Amsterdam. 

Luiz Risi, the creator, artist and filmmaker behind this street art intervention, installs the figures himself at various strategic locations in and around the famous Red Light District of Amsterdam. Risi advances the story of the sexy mice through a series of short films and collaborations with international artists like The London Police, Minivilla, Laser 3.14, Wayne Horse, Joe Holbrook and Maomaland. Amsterdam, like many European cities, is infested with mice living with and yet simultaneously invisible to most. 

Developing this idea further, Risi created The Red Mice District. The artworks play with and comment on the infamous neighbourhood they cohabitate. As Risi explains: “I always thought of Amsterdam as a kind Disneyland for adults. It’s also heavily populated by mice, so I thought these fellows deserve to have their own Red Light District. Usually, street artists want to spread their work in multiple areas for more visibility, but this project very intentionally does in fact the opposite. By restricting myself to one neighbourhood the artworks create a locally inspired narrative."
