BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER: CELINEW HONG coming

BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER: ANDRADA TRAPNELL

Art, visual representation, and the embodiment of dreams, reality, thoughts and feelings were always a big part of my life growing up in Romania. This passion was always burning inside of me, and after multiple degrees and a short stint in the world of finance, I decided that I would pursue my true passion of becoming a self-taught artist.

I have been inspired by many subjects throughout this creative journey, perhaps most importantly by the distinction between the tangible world that we live in and the mysterious realm of dreams that offers a surreal gateway to our subconscious mind. For me, painting is a language of its own, from the way the first brush stroke starts a conversation to the way the last one completes a bigger picture with grand statements, abstract feelings, or open-ended conversation.

In my figurative work, I contour a subject through a lens of realism to establish a common understanding of existence. Through the use of mixed media in the surrounding, I reveal a representation of what the subject’s subconscious thoughts are revealing to the viewer. https://andrada.gallery
