A massive mural by late New York City artist Keith Haring has been recently discovered in Amsterdam, making it his largest in Europe. The mural was unveiled during a press conference at the city’s Markt Kwartier (Food Market).

The work traces back to Haring’s debut European museum exhibition in Rotterdam in 1982, which preceded his first solo museum in 1986 at Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. The mural, which took two days to paint, served as a gift to the city and was created in a lower-income neighborhood. Eventually, the work was boarded up to preserve climate control inside the structure but resurfaced after years of lobbying from city locals.

Take a look at the 30-year-old mural above then check out the T-shirts from Virgil Abloh and Takashi Murakami’s ”TECHNICOLOR 2” exhibition.
