Artists of the Year 2016

Article text
Last November (2016) brought another piece of happy news: another one of my paintings had been selected for “Artists Of The Year” Exhibition organized by “Artists & Illustrators” magazine. Amazingly the same painting “Touch Of The East” was selected which had already won The Grand Prize in The Still Life Competition by “International Artist” magazine in August 2016! It seemed to be everybody’s favourite last year.

So in February I flew to London to attend another “Artists Of The Year” reception at The Mall Galleries. I was truly impressed by the variety and diversity of the display of the works by the 50 short-listed artists and it was a pleasure to meet some new artists and also see some familiar faces. I enjoyed speaking with other artists and the organizers which is always refreshing and mind opening.
