Typography tribute

Ben Eine inspired work on Java Street, Amsterdam. Signed by Diylay.

Again the sensation of not being alone > there are others who share my interest. And show it. This is a tribute I spotted on Java Street, the up and coming hip and happening shopping street around the corner, rappidly turning into a populair destination for young people sporting beards and buns. The typography on the shutter is inspired by Ben Eine’s work, a tribute I call it. {What was I doing there? I went with my son to an Indian phone shop to have the broken glass of his iPhone replaced, at a fair price. The mix of old and new use of the street is interesting, big Muslim mamas rubbing houlders with the hipster crowd…}

Which results in my Sunday t-shirt below. And don’t get me wrong. The word copycat may have a negative ring to it, but is isn’t everything done before? Or is it the origins of an idea that count?
