Respiro! deserved the 3rd place in the Artegante competition whose results were announced today ( http://microconcorsi.artegante.com/galleria.php?vincitori=1 )
After an online vote, a jury made up of “ (..) people who do not necessarily have to do with the world of art. Everyone has different ages, histories, professions and backgrounds. We recognize the value of the Critics and of Art Historians (especially those who carry out their work in an ethically correct way) but we believe that Art must be an open world and not necessarily locked up in confined environments, always frequented by the usual people. “(cit. www.artegante.com)
It is a pleasure and an honor that my painting has been appreciated to the point of being elevated among hundreds of participants.
I thank the jury, the organizers and those who appreciate me every day!
