Representational Modern: Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize Exhibition @ Modern Eden Gallery
The Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize exhibition ‘Representational Modern’ will feature new works by the Winners, Honourable Mentions and Finalists of the Inaugural Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize. This exhibition will celebrate the unique aesthetic and technical skills of the participating artists while allowing each artist to choose the subject that speaks to them most strongly. You will see incredible work across various mediums including painting, drawing, sculpture and doll art in various styles from realism and pop surrealism.
As a leader and advocate for the arts, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine champions emerging and mid career artists. In the 5+ years since our launch, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine has proudly become – a voice, a tribe, and a platform – for creatives whose work doesn’t always fit neatly into the traditional fine art “box”. In keeping with our mission, the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize seeks to inspire creatives from around the world to pursue a life and career in the arts, and to help careers grow through our exposure of their work to the Beautiful Bizarre Magazine tribe of creatives, curators, gallerists and collectors.
Please join the artists and Gallery Directors Kim & Bradley on 12 January from 6 – 9pm for the opening reception at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, and enjoy the best of the 2018 Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize entries.
