Life is a Beautiful Struggle
by Sander van Beusekom
The story behind this mural is that normally, a break dancer and a Ballerina would never dance together as they are completely different. The second house shows how even though they are the opposites of each other, a dance can come forth. The last house with the represents the combined dance of the rapper and the ballerina and the text “Life is a beautiful struggle”. The bright colors of pink, purple and yellow stand out beautifully against the blue sky. Life is a beautiful struggle is made for the Kaya Kaya festival.
