A Boholano visual artist has proven once again his excellence in visual art after receiving recognition in the ホームイベント6th Geoje International Art Festival ‘Atomic Peace’ in 2020 in South Korea.
Sam Penaso, who hails from Guindulman, is one of the five artists, who was awarded excellence in his art.
There were 15 works selected by 15 judges.
Although the panelists did not see the work in person, the juries voted thru various photographs.
Penaso is one of the featured artists in the 6th Geoje International Art Festival hosted by the Haegeumgang Theme Museum.
Penaso’s “Lifescape 99,” acrylic on canvas that uses silkscreen print technique, will be on exhibit during the festival that gathers over 120 artists from 28 countries.
Under the theme ‘sebunhwadoen peace’ or Atomic Peace (“think of peace as atoms, the smallest particle of substance”), the event promotes unity and harmony through the interaction of artworks made by artists from diverse cultural backgrounds.
