I am so delighted to publish our second Portrait of an Artist challenge results. The theme of this challenge was for you to recreate through a portrait or self portrait, your interpretation of the Mexican tradition of Día de los Muertos. We had some fabulous entries and our editor for this column, the wonderful Ile Mont, has curated and critiqued a number of them. Huge thanks to Ile and to all our artists too! (Foreword by Joanne Carter).
“To be willing and open to experience other cultures that are not ours is an act of growth, respect and learning. I am very happy and grateful to those who decided to free for a moment from any cultural barriers and put their heart and dedication to create in a very inspired way something unfamiliar and foreign.
Thank you very much for all of your submissions to our Portrait Of An Artist “Día De Los Muertos” Autumn Challenge!
Special congratulations to Lorenka Campos, Liliana Schwitter, Armineh Hovanesian, Susan Rennie, Giulia Baita and Juta Jazz’.
