The painting of vans and trucks is a a part of POW! WOW! unique to the Rotterdam edition of the international street art festival. Last year, it was organized for the first time in the M4H-area, where it was the source of so much joy and creativity, that we just simply had to repeat it at this year’s festival in the Afrikaanderwijk.

That’s why we’ve selected a special artist line-up, that will transform a selection of vehicles into a mobile art installation, free of charge. Would you like to be the owner of such a one-of-a-kind piece? Fill in this form. And if you’re an artist, there’s still a chance to join 20 VANS 30 CANS as well; we have left a few spots open in our roster for an ‘open call’. To apply, you can fill in the same form.

Among the applicants, the twenty most suitable vehicles will chosen, to be painted live during POW! WOW! Rotterdam at the Afrikaanderplein on Sunday September 15 tijdens POW! WOW! Rotterdam.

To be able to be considered, you have to follow these three points:

  • Your vehicle is a van, camper of small truck. Regular cars or caddy’s will unfortunately not be considered.
  • You agree to the fact that an artist from our lineup will be randomly assigned to your vehicle.
  • You agree to give the artist creative freedom while painting your vehicle. The POW! WOW! Rotterdam organization guarantees no skulls or offensive imagery will be made.
