First Prize Winner of VKR75 Painting Competition

With enormous pride and joy, I announce that I am the First Prize winner of the VKR Holding 75 (link) anniversary International Painting Competition, awarded in Copenhagen. You can see a picture of the winning painting below. Its title is "Enlightenment":


The painting competition collated works of art from no fewer than 20 countries in Europe, Asia and North and South America. The central theme for the competition was that : "the work should express the importance of the window to buildings, with particular emphasis on light through the roof or facade".

April 2016

On April 1st I gave a talk about my work at The Bryn Mawr School (link) in Baltimore. It was a rewarding and joyful experience. The audience was fantastic and the students and professors really made me feel at home.


The following week I transmitted my experience as a painter through an art workshop at Gilman School. I encouraged the boys to be brave with color. I was very satisfied with the outcome, the students did a great work.

Only one month to go until the Opening of the Made in Paint exhibition (link) with the artworks of the artists in residence selected to attend the Golden Foundation Residency Program in 2015 (link). April 9, 2016 in New Berlin, New York. Save the date!
