I am proud to announce that I have just received this prestigious and important International Award.
I am being represented by a fantastic new gallery called DeepWest. It specialises in promoting high class contemporary art. My pieces are exhibited in the company of a selected very exciting and original pieces from an array of artists from all-over-the-world.
Final words from Lisa Galletti – the curator:
With this email I would like to thank you for participating in the Love my body exhibition.
I was very happy to get to know you and your wonderful art and to be able to write a really heartfelt critique for you.
The full catalogue can be found here. My entry is on page 390:
When reflecting on the importance of the use of colour in my work, I was trying to analyse its impact on the mood portrayed and the perception of a viewer.
As a part of this critical process, I watched a number of videos from previous exhibitions. My attention was drawn to a brief narrative by Lisa Galletti, one of art curators at the gallery. The essence of her wise words somehow summarises my inner thoughts and feeling. Perhaps, because of this incidental cohesion of views, she contacted me to invite me to take part in “Love My Body”. I was truly impressed by her spoken narrative as follows:
“Colour as a visual perception of the various electromagnetic radiations within the visible spectrum reflected by bodies.
Colour as a natural or artificial substance used as dye or paint.
What is colour for you?
Colour that causes emotion, changes your mood.
Colour is in nature; in its indefinite variations.
It is a foundation of division of the world and, at the same time, a characteristic of it.”

I include an Instagram post with her final video appraisal of artwork, she was responsible for as a curator. Thank you Lisa!
I have received a personal invitation to submit some of my recent pieces to an international exhibition organised by Artoze. I was a featured artist in the last edition of their magazine. I was very touched to be recognised and invited again:
Hope you’re doing great!
It’s my pleasure to e-meet you and introduce you to this amazing opportunity that could be an interest for you and your beloved ones to let the creativity be showcased on an International Platform.’
I have spent the whole morning preparing relevant information and refining my artist statement. At the moment, I am ready to submit 12 paintings to be included in this show.
I have included a screenshot of the confirmation email below:
