Here are the winners in CATEGORY 49, SCULPTURE — REPRESENTATIONAL
1st Place Bio: HENRIQUE EDMX MONTANARI
Born in São Paulo, I learned to see the beauty in the midst of the chaos of the big city, and using spray painting, stencil, and augmented reality I create artistic interventions around the city providing another way of seeing reality.
We are all connected by frequency and energy, we create our reality. If our reality is composed of vibration of thought and material manifestation, are we not all one? https://www.edmx.com.br/
1st Place Bio: IGOR ŠETER
Born on 02.04.1951 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Since 1980, he has been living and creating in the city of Sombor in Serbia. He makes sculptures using the cold casting technique in the following materials: iron-resin, bronze-resin, stone-resin, and many of his works are classically cast in bronze. He made sculptures as well as busts of famous people for public space, but he likes to create sculptures, busts and sculptural reliefs of his choice the most. www.art-igor.com
