Artist Painted a Spectacular Mural Inspired by Amsterdam and Delft Blue Style

Lorenzo Milito is a talented artist and illustrator. In an Amsterdam canal house in the heart of the city, he painted this 27-square-meter mural hiding in the ceiling of a 17th-century canal house where he spent most of his time during the pandemic.

In the Golden Age of Dutch porcelain decoration, the Delft Blauw style was frequently used to decorate Dutch porcelain. An immersive visual experience is offered by the mural depicting the lives of Amsterdam’s most popular neighbourhoods. Lorenzo was given total freedom to create something unique in their beautiful mansion by Wesley and Vivian, two friendly Amsterdam locals.
