Jaune for the Amsterdam Student Hotel

-

JAUNE

Location – The Student Hotel Amsterdam City, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Material – Spraypaint on concrete
Year – 2016

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. These particular murals by Jaune were made for the Student Hotel Amsterdam City, located on the bustling Wibautstraat in the centre of the City. 

Jaune's signature little worker's in their bright yellow high-visibility jackets, came out of his own experience of working as a garbage man himself. While on this job he realized that even though he and his co-workers were wearing these fluorescent outfits. People mostly ignore garbage men and over the years they have become a standard image in streets all over the world. Jaune turns this image on it's head by placing his workermen characters y placing them in unexpected places and situations, often letting them interact with their environment and the people in it.
