From Amsterdam to Basel


In just a short flight four Xstreets members ventured from Amsterdam to Basel in Swtizerland to visit our buddies Bustart and Zaira and enjoy a jam packed painting and creative week. The rain that was promised didnt start and we were blessed with beautiful sunshine every day. The day after we arrived we painted at the special Schanzli Jam where we knocked out a wall that was 'picture' perfect, had great music, great atmosphere and awesome people. Big thanks to the Rappartment for the music and the breakdancers for their wicked performance.
Every day brought either a new day painting or successfully and unsuccessfully printing T-Shirts. after many many attempts and a few mishaps it wont be long before they come to a store near you:)
A holiday where we could paint every day, drink beer, chill out with friends and create some awesome pieces of work, seems to fit just about right as the perfect holiday. A huge thank you to Bust and Zai for a brilliant week it was great guys.

Xstreets Free Art Frenzy


While everyone was tucked up in bed or enjoying the last few hours of the evening, three Xstreets members were frenzily cycling around dropping Free Art all over the city of Amsterdam. They began in the red light district, taking a frantic tour in and around the alley ways and streets. They barely had time to leave the second drop when some lucky passer by grabbed the opportunity to take it. Five more lucky people had their picture taken with their new found art. For some it was a little more difficult to understand the concept that they could actually take the art with no strings attached:)
They generated a lot of interest and in particular the Cops seemed to want to know what was going on.
Cop: "We have been informed that you are acting suspicously."
Ives.One: "What is suspicious?"
Cop: "Well, why do you have a camera on the bike. I dont do that. Its not normal."
Ives.One: "We're not normal."
And so it continued for a little while, Skatin Chinchilla pretty oblivious and content with fixing the camera on the front of the bakfiets, Karma83 bricking it slightly and Ives.one craftily making the very large police officer sound incredibly ignorant without him even knowing. After checking details and, to their disappointed, finding no warrants out for their arrests they were free to continue the free art frenzy. If you were out that night or on your way to work in the morning and you found our art, check out the footage and you'll understand how it got there and why it was a great Xstreets Free Art Frenzy!

Bust and Zai in Amsterdam



The Xstreets family holiday here in Amsterdam was a whirl of lasanges and pizzas fit for kings... painting and beers and cycling and more painting and beers and cyclying, with the odd little mischief missions in the night. Friday at the Java Eiland started the weekend of with a banger of a wall. Bust, Zai, Skate, and Ives.one cracked open the spray paint champagne with that one. Saturday was a trip around the town and to the market to make the guys day by buying paint for 3 days for all of us...and so laden with cans we head to an unknown squat building where we find we can paint the outside, (windows and doors included). Things got a little crazy when little monkeys got hold of our markers and started to tag all over the forbidden window....we thought wed better leave them to it...we had more missions to accomplish. The next two days were again spent painting and two really great mural walls came out of it. All in all it was a great Xstreets weekend and with colours of paint flying everywhere we really made the city beautiful this weekend.



Just A few of the missions accomplished in the deep of night:)

The Monday Mural



After seeing what vast array of colours we had left after a 3 day painting binge the 4th day became a trippers paradise. Bust, Zai, Karma83, Skate, Fons together with ODN and Koos.F paid a tripute to the wonderful world of hallucinogenics under the bridge at Flevopark.

Sunday Painting in the Westerpark


Bust, Skate, Zai and Karma83 spent a lovely few hours painting in the sunshine, with a nice little theme to tie it together.

Status website X-Streets Amsterdam

Well! it's been a thing with us at 'studio weltevree' to make a website design for x-streets.com that functions well for all of us. Of course we needed to search for the best possible format for the website.

We wanted to make a e-zine with the 'Joomla CMS' which would have all of our profile and photo's! 5 plugins and some tweaking later! The core (CMS with extensions) will be done!

We have made some photo's that will be made in a derivation from Fons' illustration style, only cleaner. Due to the fact those have to resemble the Xstreets painters.

After that we will CSS style a multitude of templates based on illustrations made by the painters! When this is done each Xstreets member can change their own look and feel to the website by a drop down menu for the template!

More updates follow soon!


We will begin testing in the first week of next month!

XSTRTS WALL Amsterdam

Last weekend some members of XSTRTS Amsterdam, painted a wall together. Unless the cold there was some sunshine in the city. We decided to make a wall with pieces this time. The only thing was that the POLICE, thought they could arrest us (THE FOOLS) ofcourse we had the license to PAINT (I wish we had one to kill) so after some minutes they dript off like some litlle puppies. So we could finish our wall, wich I think looks great with the black background.
Here are some pictures of the session.
