Wederom behoor ik tot de genomineerde internationale kunstenaars, dit keer gaat het om de “LEONARDO DA VINCI AWARD - ARTIST UNIVERSAL”. Uiteraard vind ik dit weer fantastisch.

 

 

 

 

 <<  Dear Mais,

I am very proud to award you with the International Prize Leonardo Da Vinci - The Universal Artist.

The Prize is for the Artists that are worth for their artistic merit.

You will be awarded on January 29th, 2016, inside the  Borghese Palace in Florence.

It is one of the most prestigious art awards awarded in the heart of Florence.

Important celebrities from the world of culture will be present at the ceremony  and the talented artists will be awarded with an important prize for their careers.

In the January/February  number of the magazine Art International Contemporary, we will realize an introductive piece dedicated to Leonardo Da Vinci’s artistic talent; following to the piece the publication of the selected artists’ artworks. 

In the heart of the ancient Florence, near ‘’Piazza del Duomo’’ and ‘’Piazza della Signoria’’, Borghese Palace is one of the most significate example of  Neo-Classic architecture of the state capital, Florence. Even if its facade is majestic, this palace could seem hidden by the strict road. But once you come in, the beauty and the elegance are dazzling: the large honored salon brings to the Mirrors’ Room , that was the bedroom of Paolina Bonaparte.

The prize is given to those artists who has been chosen by Mr. Salvatore Russo and Francesco Saverio Russo.

Sincerely

Dott. Francesco Saverio Russo  >>

Ter gelegenheid van de uitreiking van de "1e International Prize Leonardo da Vinci" is er een speciale catalogus uitgegeven. Mijn schilderij "Cleopatra" is hiervoor uitgekozen, alleen wel erg jammer dat ze de zwarte geschilderde rand op het doek op de afbeeldingen hebben verwijderd. Men dacht waarschijnlijk dat dit een losse sierlijst zou zijn? Tegelijkertijd is in "ART International" magazine januari/februari 2016 ook mijn werk vermeld.

                        

                                        

 

                                                                  

 

 

UPDATE November 30 - 2017

I've noticed through the statistics I have many views from all over the world on specially this website page. I also received e-mails from artists with questions about the (2nd) “Leonardo da Vinci Award”. Many, many and I really mean many artists including myself again are "special" selected for this Award and many awards with all different titles before this one. If you have the thoughts (like I did before -and others- found out) only you and just a few artists are the lucky ones which are selected, think twice. With that knowledge in mind hopefully you can make your own decision to accept the nomination of a nice mass production Award with a nice impressive name. Fact is, that's what it is, nothing more, nothing less. And most important thing off course, don't forget to make your payment before the deadline. I realize after this update I will not be selected for this kind of Awards anymore J and that will be just fine with me. I wish all my fellow artists much of success, wisdom and a realistic point of view, you are special, with or without Award.

 

UPDATE February 17 - 2018

Artists are still searching for this award and some of them find this web page and asking me questions. After a while I’ll made screen-prints of my statistics just to make shore and have 161 by now from all parts over the world. Only the ones which are looking for “Leonardo da Vinci Award” off course and I am not even checking up every day, meaning the number is more. Keep in mind that is just a little part of the nominated artists. My opinion is that these kind of nominations for hundreds/thousands of artists are only a big clever revenue model for the organizers. Unfortunately our artwork is not the commodity for some curators like it should be but artists themselves are with our money in the first place. What else is new we can say. I hope  this information is helpful for all artists.

E-mail January 16 - 2018. In the meantime lucky me is nominated again, the last one of this kind for me I guess. Venice “Awarding of the International Prize of NATIONS - Tribute to TIZIANO”. Do I accept this Award and make the payment? Well, I don’t think so…….
