Vroom &Varossieau has a long standing collaboration with the Student Hotel. Providing murals and art works for their high-end student accommodations in different cities in the Netherlands and other European countries. This particular mural by Cranio was made for the Student Hotel Amsterdam City, located on the bustling Wibautstraat. 

Cranio (Fabio Oliveira) decided in 1998 that the grey walls in ‘his’ Sao Paolo needed a boost. Since then he has been doing the same for other cities. His trademark and key player is a blue indian. He’s a self-taught artist, who learned everything he knows about the art on the streets. Over the years, his technique and context, which are essential for his work, have improved drastically, without affecting the sharpness of the style he’s known for.
