1st Place Bio: GARRULUS GLANDARIUS
I have been painting and drawing since my childhood, but the materials have changed over the years: Paints, brushes, paper and canvases have given way to a camera and numerous image editing and rendering programs. With a variety of different digital working techniques and with great attention to detail, I create surrealistic fantasy worlds from my own photographs, digital painting and self-created renderings of 3D fractals. Documenting reality in all its facets has never been my goal, because reality already exists. Instead, I would like to supplement and enrich it with new and unimagined dimensions. Since 2018 I have been working as a freelance artist and designer. Since then I have published numerous calendars and puzzles at “Calvendo Verlag”, as well as some small picture books at the self- publisher “BoD”. In addition, in the same year I started to offer my pictures for sale on various marketplaces on the internet and since 2021 I also run my own online shop.

1st Place Bio: PETER POWELL
My name is Peter Powell, 74, retired graphic designer living in South Australia ,for many years have created works of art in my favourite medium digital art I use to use oils and water colour but age has taken its toll so the computer has been my main source of expression. The piece I submitted called “life is a chess game” was in reaction to the many race difficulties the world is experiencing over the past few years with certain groups acting like clowns and others exhibiting forced respectability, time will heal all wounds with the peace dove healing the process and showing the way. I have Parkinson’s so life has its challenges but the two passions I have Art and music will sustain me till the end, hope you like my work and look forward to hearing from you love to you all.
