BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER: Born in a tent in San Saba, Ira Kennedy is a fifth generation Texan. Growing up in numerous locations from Japan to Germany, his experiences are as diverse as his talents.
Artists of the past have had sudden shifts in their artistic style. Picasso’s revelation came once he saw African Art and Van Gogh’s discovery of Japanese art was equally life changing. Likewise, Ira’s exposure to Australian Aboriginal art and the ancient rock art of the Southwest Indians came together to evoke an artistic epiphany.
Since his two solo exhibitions and exhibiting in a group show, “The Art of Money”, in New York City’s Chelsea Gallery which included many internationally known artists, including Andy Warhol, Ira has had his share of success.
In 2015 his work was included in Acrylic Works 2, Acrylic Artist magazine, Southwest Art and several online publications His art is held in numerous private collections from Australia to South Korea, and New York to California. Ira currently lives and works from his studio in Llano County, Texas. http://www.IraKennedy.com
BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER: Aurelija Kilinske
I’m a professional artist who believes art is a lifestyle and a way to
translate feelings visually into the real world. My paintings are inspired by the nature that surrounds me. I focus on the exploration of colours, undertones, shades and textures. I build a poetic and intuitive visual universe, which addresses sensations and emotions.
