I have been selected for a prestigious artistic prize in Italy!
My only regret is not being able to go there, having been informed at the last minute. But I was still able to send a small work (60 cm x 60 cm) to the prestigious Antica gallery in Lecce. This recognition comes at the right time, after 2 particularly difficult years on a personal and professional level. But art is stronger than anything and my resolve to paint angels in a visionary style is rewarded. It is no coincidence that my work caught the attention of the organizers of the Terre d'Otrante biennial, an ancient land par excellence.
" The Italia in Arte nel Mondo Academy appreciates your Artistic Work, through which you have been able to interpret, with knowledge, your Contemporaneity (beyond the expressive grammar adopted, independent of the methods and technical and intellectual means you have used) , a condition, of course, which highlights an interpretative capacity that we attribute to you and which leads the art world to take an interest in your commitment to composition". And it is for everything that is stated here, in full harmony with the Principles that govern the World of Visual Arts, that the Honorary Committee, in the person of its Honorary President Dr. Michele Miulli, intends.
