Lately, a little art collection is starting to evoke in my apartment. I am learning about the differences between street and urban art, I can distinguish an illustration from a print and I am even becoming a true expert on frames and passe-partouts. All to blame on my friend Marloes and her Walls Gallery at the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam.
Walls Gallery is a light, open spaced gallery where young national and international artists present their work (all under €5,000) during a bi-monthly exhibition. The gallery offers paintings, drawings, photography and sculptures from artists like Silas, Alice Wielinga, Martine Johanna, Paul Tas, ROYALSTEEZ and Sander Dekker.
Recently, Marloes thought it was time to give Walls a little sis and boom: concept store P737 was born (it really is all about concept stores these days, isn’t it?).
Oh, and only the greatest bookshelf ever by Van Tjalle & Jasper. I’d buy it in a heart beat! Ok, maybe not in a heart beat, but this shelf sure screams for a line like that!
Walls brings a new exhibition every two months, and these come with the best opening parties ever. I mean, what is there not to like about art, tunes, vodka and a beautiful crowd?
So if you are in need of a little art collection, or yours has some room for growth, make sure to pay Walls and P737 a visit.
