Paint & Beer is an annual live art event held at Villa Friekens in Amsterdam. Unfortunately this year it was cancelled to the public at the last minute due to a few permits not being ready in time however that was never going to stop the original Head Jam crew from 2013 so we packed up our gear and set off on what was to end up being a 12 hour roadtrip.
The journey started for me and Process from Peterborough ending up in Folkestone 2 and a half hours later where we met up with the driver of the European leg My Dog Sighs.
Also on the roadtrip were where the Idiom brothers and Miss Wah which completed the original Head Jam crew of 2013.
We arrived in Amsterdam Friday evening and after losing all contact with Mrs Korp I took an early night which worked out well because the subsequent early morning meant that I got to meet and have a great chat with Din Din

The early start meant I could paint lots of korpworms so I nailed the first one early which was a bit of a colab with Miss Wah.
Then what followed was a bit of a korpworm painting spree.
Despite the event being cancelled to the general public it was a great opportunity to throw around some paint and catch up with a lot of art friends, old and new. Massive thank you to Snub and family for making us so welcome and a fond farewell to Paint & Beer at Villa Friekens.
