Quotes
"I love it that we managed to bring the art of the Rijksmuseum to a larger audience. Literally: we took the art and brought it to the street or your Facebook page. And it is especially awesome when I see my favourite street artists suddenly spray paint a Rembrandt or Hals in the middle of the Warmoestraat." Marvin Pupping, director BrandBase
