In 2022, painters, sketchers, digital artists, photographers and sculptors from 69 countries submitted JPEGs for the 50 categories — to win gallery affiliation, career launch, high scores, great press and/or $5,000 in prizes.

Here are the winners in CATEGORY 30, POP.

1st Place Bio: Edward Coronel

A a self-taught visual artist, he graduated as a physicist at the University of the Philippines-Diliman. Throughout his professional career in science and technology, he maintained his artistic endeavors then decided to fully focus on his craft in 2006. He started from figurative abstractions and veered towards realism in 2019.

Coronel’s FREEDOM (36”x48” oil painting on canvas) is his homage to two prominent artistic traditions: Still Life and Pop Art. He traverses both genres through this piece- a homage to the timelessness of figurative expressions, and an inquiry into our popular cultural reality.
