Visionaire 55: Surprise! - Sign up now.



Famous has only one item in stock and we're planning to keep this lovely box of magic pleasure for ourselves ;-P. But ofcourse you can sign up by sending an email to: info@famous.com, and we will reserve one for you too.

A peek inside the new Peter Beard book... :-)




This new Taschen-published book of Peter Beard is very modest on the outside, but oh so extravagant on the inside. Leafing through will take you longer than planned - there's just too much to discover!




Nice to know: another edition of this book is available for 10,000 euros. It has the same contents as the "regular" one, but includes a signed photograph and has a leather cover.

Dadara Munnification





Back in 2006 Famous hosted the first, and highly succesful, Dutch Munny event "Munnification".
Dutch artist Dadara created unique, hand painted designs on these vinyl critters.
One of which was used for Dj Tiesto and Maxi Jazz's "Dance For Life" record sleeve.


Some of these unique figures are still for sale at Famous.

Below are some photographs of this event.

Irene van Dijk at Ladies


Amsterdam artist Irene van Dijk for Ladies.
In these three pieces the Cute, the Obscure and the Woman go hand in hand.

Peter Klashorst at the Ladies exhibition


The first photograph in row, hanging close near the window, seemed very Vermeer-esque to us.

As you can see below this picture was printed (and framed) life size.

Neema's wall of fame

Famous created a very chique portfolio, African style, to present Peter's Neema series.

Collaboration with Klashorst


Michou joined forces with Peter Klashorst for the Ladies exhibition. Peter made a series of 10 photographs named Neema, that were exposed in the store. Some in life-size...

LADIES exhibition


The "Neema" series by Peter Klashorst that he created for Ladies.


This year, Famous has two exhibitions: Ladies and Gentlemen.
Ladies showed the work of several Famous artists like Lauren Greenfield, Larry Sultan, David LaChapelle, Rachel de Joode, Miles Aldridge and many more...
The subject of the work was, clearly, "ladies".

After the opening of daido's exhibition at the Reflex Gallery in Amsterdam, we went out for a bite with this distinguished little gentleman...
