My last artist achievement.
Last December I submitted a portrait (oil on canvas) for the BP Portrait Award 2019. Titled “The Street Artist”, my seater is unknown by me, but he is real. He was playing on the streets of the north coast of England. The old clothing with interesting patterns, the colours and style, plus his folk guitar seemed to be a perfect model for this competition.
Over 2,500 artists from many countries had their entries, and so far only 290 were selected for the next stage. Unfortunately, this time I didn’t succeed. I’ll try again later this year.
My portrait is for sale on my website.
