Taking part in the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize was a fantastic experience. The promotion of the artists is invaluable & working with The Beautiful Bizarre team is a pleasure. With the finalists being asked to participate in a group show, the contest comes full circle where the artists get to meet & enjoy each other’s work. It’s what an art prize should be. – Traditional Art Award 2019, 2nd Prize Winner, Victor Grasso.
