WINNER: ARTIST OF THE YEAR 2010posted by Valery Koroshilov
Artists & Illustrators Magazine (UK) voted Valery Koroshilov's new painting "Ecce Homo" the overall winner of the national competition "Artist of The Year 2010". Published: Artists & Illustrators, September 2010, p. 33. Chosen among over 3,500 entries, this picture has been praised by the jury for its outstanding painterly qualities. THE JUDGES’ VERDICT Throughout the judging process, Valery’s painting was the one that we returned to again and again. Our first impression was that the three boys appeared cute and charming, but repeat viewings intrigued us: is there something more sinister afoot? The technique is also incredibly accomplished, with the subtle shifts in skin tone and his command of colour particularly impressing our judges. Valery is a worthy winner in arguably the strongest category.
