Amsterdam
Based on aerial views from Google Earth, Chinese artist Lu Xinjian creates abstract paintings of major cities across the world in his series City DNA. What appears to be a mess of abstract shapes and colors, soon becomes a coherent view of the subject city, allowing the city's nuances and unique characteristics to shine through. 

Aboveis the city of Amsterdam,  below is Munich.
