Nina Valkhoff has been attracted by the organization behind the Kaya Kaya concept to create a mural in the Otrabanda district. Nina arrived 3 days ago on the island to start her project located at the Hendriksteeg. It's a small alley that leads down to the Breedestraat. The first lines and inspection surfaces of her painting have already been set up. It is definitely worth a visit to see her busy with the setup of the alignment and coloring. She is an internationally respected talented artist who knows how to combine surrealism and realsitme into unique works. Her sense of color and detail is amazing. On the building there already was a work created by Garrick Marchena, a well-known local artist. His style has a lot in common with hers. He is also active this week restoring his artwork that he created in 2012.
