We are proud to announce that we have been nominated for the Dutch Street Art Awards 2017. In this second edition, Street Art Today is nominated in the categories Dutch Mural and Epic Events. Two members of the SAT team also have a chance to win an award: Missy DB is nominated for the People’s Choice award and David Roos (Droos86) is nominated for the best Street Photographer.
In the category Dutch Mural the portrait of Anne Frank named ‘Let Me Be Myself’ made by Eduardo Kobra is nominated. This mural, made in September 2016, can be found on the NDSM wharf in the north side of Amsterdam. Kobra: “Her story is still relevant today, as we are facing war in many regions of the world and people seeking refuge because of their race or religion.” For the background story and more information, see: Eduardo Kobra paints Anne Frank in Amsterdam.
Kings Spray Street Art Festival 2017 is nominated in the category Epic Event. Kings Spray is an annual festival organized by Street Art Today.
