This Is What Happens When You Peel Off 30 Years Of Graffiti

Paul De Graaf recently shared an amazing photo album that shows the layers of paint that have formed on a famous Dutch graffiti wall over the last 30 years.

According to De Graaf, this is “Doornroosje”. It’s a graffiti ‘Hall of Fame’ in the city of Nijmegen, the Netherlands. What started as a 70s hippie cult place, became a center for music and art in the early 80s. It was even one of the first places where it was legal to smoke cannabis. The building is surrounded by walls that are all spray painted from top to bottom.
