Young talent award
Every year the Dutch Street Art Awards nominates the most creative and skilled artists under the age of 25 in the Netherlands. This year’s winner was the youngest so far. Jury report: “It is difficult to make these portraits in gray tones, with such details in the process and adding so much emotion to it. As far as the jury is concerned, the convincing winner of the Young Talent Award is the female street artist who can carry on the tradition of the old Dutch masters.”
