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 only 44 were selected.
During 2019 those paintings will be on display at the National Portrait Gallery In Trafalgar Square, central London.
My portrait “The Street Artist” is for sale on my website.
