Judith de Leeuw, whose alias is JDL Street Art, created a four by two-meter spray-painted tiger at the Leidseplein in Amsterdam, especially for World Tiger Day.

JDL street art alias is a 22 y/o street artist and born and raised in Amsterdam, NL. In 2015 she started her first commissioned works, which also caused her to graduate in art & Design in 2016. "I started doing spray paint by the age of 15, on the streets, where i met graffiti related people that introduced me to a spray can for the first time. Now i own a studio where i work when i don't paint murals, on the east side of Amsterdam," she explained.

The young street artist already became famous for her black and white mural of Amy Winehouse in Amsterdam, but this year, during the World Tiger Day she created a tiger's eye of five by two meters with spray paint on the Leidseplein in Amsterdam. The street artist, together with the World Nature Fund (WNF) and Street Art Museum Amsterdam (SAMA), promotes awareness for tigers in the wild. The concept for the artwork was inspired by a National Geographic Wild documentary about India's most famous tiger struggle: Tiger Queen.
