A selection of illustrations for various clients and private projects I did in the last few months.
This illustration was for Liger
, a Tshirt brand that only makes limited edition prints. This design was part of a series shirts done by different artists with a movie theme. I chose a blaxploitation movie Gang Wars (1976)
a.k.a. The Devils Express
that appealed to me and did my take on its film poster. Buy here!
This work was called 'living in the ghetto'. Acrylics 100 x 100 cm Credits: Christiaan Dros
This illustration was also part of a group expo: Art on paper.
p.s. Mokum stands for Amsterdam.
For Amnesty International
, we painted this mural during the Zwarte Cross festival
The project was made to create awareness for prisoners being detained for no legitimate reason or without legal process. The sentence above our work says
'What would you do if you were released from prison'.

The design below is for Paradiso
, one of Netherlands oldest music venues located in Amsterdam. They celebrate their 50th anniversary this year and asked 50 artists to create designs that are going to be silkscreen printed in 3 colours each. This poster is our entry. Credits: Christiaan Dros.
These painted wood logs were commisioned by a private collector from Canada.
The logos are all local Canadian logo's that had special meaning for my client.
Panels CNC routed for Bosco
restaurant in addition to the work
I had already done there.
The Rhino was painted for 'Heroes'
a Pop Art exhibition at the Go Gallery
and was part of an installation by Hero Bonardi aka Hero De Janeiro
. Now only six months later the last Northern white rhino has already extinct.
With the introduction of the new Microsoft surface Studio Pro
, I was asked to feature in their new commercial.
The commercial was focused on the Dutch market but is also translated for other countries.
The wall below was painted together with San Proper as part of this Microsoft commercial,
which is also starring my son Max and my partner Christiaan Dros
The video was created by The Story Lab.
Back in Amsterdam, I painted this wall with my friend Serch
And finally, my old graffiti crew (Nes crew
) and I painted another tribute wall.
We picked a few of his pieces that our friend Math painted during his lifetime and repainted them on the wall.
We arranged them as pictures in one of his many black books as seen from above on his living room table.
Below you can see his actual pieces. Credits: Serch
and the Amsterdam Signpainters
Below Math his original pieces.
