One hundred works will be exhibited in Loods 6 from the 27th till the 30th of October in Loods 6 in Amsterdam. The works are selected by a jury comprised of experts in the different techniques through which portraits are acquired. An expert on Street Art will be represented in the jury as well. Who that will be remains our secret for now.
