Dubbed “The Oscars for the Visual Arts”, The Global Art Awards celebrate the exceptional achievements of artists from across the globe. There are 16 visual arts categories, ranging from photography, street art, illustration and painting to awards recognising individual artists, including Best Newcomer; Best Sculpture Artist Award; Best Innovative Artist Award
as well as the highly illustrious Best Emirati Artist Award.
In reaching the finals of the Global Art Awards, Cornelia Steckhan says: “My Painting Stay in peace on a green planet means: We need to save the mother earth. Please do not pollute the earth, please do not disturb the jungle, please do not disturb the environment of the wild animals. Please keep the green earth for our further generations. Please help and fight with me for the green earth.
On my painting Stroke, I compare this serious disease with our planet’s disease. In all the countries on the planet are different nature problems, some have political problems, others destroy the nature of the vegetation and also reduce the population of wild animals. In industrialized countries (civilized) billion tons of trash, plastic and chemicals are being produced that reach the planet’s soil.
Our planet earth soon suffers from a stroke.
It’s a great honour to be named a finalist in the Global Art Awards and I am delighted to be able to join such a fantastic, roll-call of artistic talent heading for the awards in Dubai. These awards really do single out the best, most exciting artists working today, to celebrate their achievements, and I am honoured to be among them.”
Joëlle Dinnage, Founder and Director of the Global Art Awards said, “We created the awards a year ago to establish an inspirational international art competition on a global scale. Artists who were successful last time have gone on to gain recognition and commissions, travel and attend exhibitions and receive a real boost to their careers.
This year, standards have been exceptionally high and the competition has been fierce across all categories. Congratulations to all the finalists. We look forward to seeing them in Dubai.”
The awards ceremony takes place on the evening of Thursday 21st November 2018 at the 16th floor Penthouse FIVE Jumeirah Palm against the backdrop of the astonishing Dubai skyline.
