Each May the American Art Awards organization selects the 25 Best Galleries and Museums in America, then in autumn these revered art institutions vote on online art to decide the world’s best contemporary artists.

America’s Best Galleries & Museums scored almost 2,000 works in 50 categories from 64 countries.

Winners in this category are from USA, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, LITHUANIA, SERBIA, GEORGIA, UZBEKISTAH & FRANCE

BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER: William Choi has developed a great passion for art and painting as an artist over the past 5 years initially being self-taught and mentored by oil and pastel artists in Australia as well as attending numerous face to face and online artist workshops. He has received previous prizes and honourable mentions from local art societies in New South Wales and South Australia. William has also previously won sixth place in 2019 and third place in 2020 in the American Art Awards.

William approaches his painting by capturing the intrinsic beauty he sees in human interaction, nature and the general world around him. His study of light and how it interacts with a subject or a scene, is the main key of how William tries to capture a moment in time or the feeling of what he is observing. William initially uses tonal approaches to his paintings followed by a strong confident use of colour which give his impressionistic paintings a colourful depth and movement. In this approach William hopes to evoke an emotion, a memory or a sense of wonderment to the viewers of his paintings.

BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER STACIE WALLS

I once heard a saying that there are no straight lines in nature.

In my artwork I do not limit myself to one medium, style or concept.

Inspiration-nature, flowers, leaves, trees, lichen, rust, old barns, abstract shapes and colors coming together to form a picture or a feeling.

Materials I frequently use: glass, alcohol ink, copic markers, soldering iron, yupo paper, cement, thin set, china, mesh, beads.

My style is always evolving and changing.
