We’re delighted to share the latest work of whimsy from the talented Italian-born, Amsterdam-based illustrator and art director Lorenzo Milito. During the pandemic Lorenzo has been busy at work on a 27 square meter indoor mural, ceiling included, in a beautiful 17th century canal house located in the heart of Amsterdam. Entirely painted with acrylic markers, the artwork was inspired by the traditional Dutch Delft Blauw style, a hugely influential style between 1600 and 1800 AD inspired by Chinese porcelain. During the 17th century, with the Dutch Golden Age in full swing, all things Eastern were sought after and the Dutch East India Company began bringing back porcelain items.
Thank you to Lorenzo for creating such a magical mural that provides the viewer with an immersive and joy-filled journey through the most popular districts of Amsterdam. Peep a few close-ups below and be sure to appreciate the time-lapse too.
