Two weeks ago, RBMA closed the selection process for participants in the coming edition of its Academy in New York, to be held in two shifts between 30th September and 2nd November. At this stage, those selected have already been notified, but the list of those who will enjoy this experience as students hadn’t been made public until now. Thanks to XLR8R, we have the names of the lucky ones. There are over sixty names, among which are some known faces, such as Objekt, Koreless, T. Williams, Throwing Snow, Octo Octa, Benjamin Damage, Evian Christ, Rudi Zygadlo and Distal.
As the only Spanish representative, we have the Galician established in Barcelona Astroboyz, although there are two other participants who have been based in Barcelona for some time. They are the Venezuelan Leo Aldrey and Canadian Sinjin Hawke..
