Delft Blue Street Art

Looking for my appointments address I drove into a dead end street by mistake and accidentally found a building full of Delft Blue street art I had never seen before.

Despite the fact that I was already running late I quickly went inside to ask what the story was why they had painted their complete building with these Delft Blue tiles.

The told me it was done by a Haarlem born artist called Hugo Kaagman and they simply liked his modern look at Delft Blue. They had to smile when I told them that I do something similar with photo's and showed them my online photo pages.

They gave me Hugo's website address and I already tried to contact him today.
He's a Dutch Street Art pioneer, doing spraycan art and stenciling since the late 70’s.

If you look at his site you'll see that he did loads of stencil art projects for a long time, strange I had never heard of him before. But maybe it was an omen that I took the wrong turn into the dead end street and found this lovely stuff.

Just gotta meet this guy!
