I am always very interested in the ways artists reinterpret my own works, but I also would like to see what they could create just based on my image: a sort of portrait based on my pictures, but not a mere copy of the photo; I am mostly curious about how they could imagine me in a totally different context.
So I decided to start a contest
Rules are simple:
- Make a drawing or a painting portraying me, but without just copying one of my pictures;
- Works will be judged based on originality and technique;
- Send the work to email@example.com within the 15th of january, 2015.
Prizes will be:
- 1st place: 3 numbered collectable DVDs of my "Anima Persa" trilogy: "Malacreanza", "Il Mondo Perduto" and "Inferno Veneziano", three artfilms by Cosmotropia De Xam, signed by me + "Antropophagus" CD by Mater Suspiria Vision (another project I work with, masters of Witch House);
- 2nd place: 1 numbered collectable DVD chosen from the ones above, still signed + "Antropophagus" CD by Mater Suspiri
