Creating poetry on the street for over 15 years, Laser 3.14’s name is inseparable from any conversation about Amsterdam and urban art. As the city’s most prolific street artist he shares his distinctive work of visual poetry both outside amongst the canals of Amsterdam and in many of the city's prestigious galleries. Laser 3.14 is celebrated globally for his bold statements about politics, popular culture & everyday life.
Laser 3.14 has exhibited in Den Haag Museum, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, is part of the Amsterdam Historic Museum permanent collection, and was awarded the PAX Peace Prize for his work towards raising issues of global stability. In addition, he's collaborated with fashion and lifestyle brands including Denham, Nike, Lane Crawford and Tommy Hilfiger.
