win & lose

* Art Stars 2011 is a major art event by Polo Jeans Co. throughout Europe, where you have to make a proposal inspired by Americana imagery through your own practice, using different sort of mediums such as painting, stenciling, photography etc. on their 120 cm 3D wooden star covered with their own denim.
** One of my 2 submission, named ”Colors”, was the winner of the contest, together with other 15 winning artists, out of 70 works from artists within Europe.
*** All selected artists will receive € 1000 cash, + € 500 for the material costs, each. A week long in-studio session in another country, with a camera crew and with a mentor from last year event.
**** The sad thing is that later on they disqualified me for being in Romania. A big achievement and a great lost at the same time.
