BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER: of Claus Jürgen Schmidt:
I have always been interested in art and started creating my first works
of art around 2012 at my end 30s. The artistic knowledge was partly
acquired through artistic education and partly autodidactically.
Application of various techniques, both classic such as acrylic on
canvas, as well as the use of modern digital possibilities through to
the inclusion of processing elements through AI.
My depicted motifs include various art and style movements,
kaleidoscopic art, expressionism, surrealism and also artistically
humorous representations of proverbs and puns.
Since 2019, regular participation in international group exhibitions and
art competitions. I have already won several certificates and awards. email@example.com
