I don’t deny that luck and chance-met control whether if you can continue your artist activities or not, no matter how talented you are. Though, I hope the award prize amply repays for artists who have been making efforts on creating art, and I would like to find out your talent that is not a just coincidence.
After heated screening of the first TERRADA ART AWARD, I could imagine the direction of the award. It doesn’t matter that your work is untrained and coarse-grained. We decided to cooperate your possibility in artworks. I want to see spectacular and compelling images as blueprint of a new world that you will create.
The second year of the award starts soon. Unless you are always challenging and trying to progress, then you cannot say it is “new” in a true context. We are willing to make every effort to meet demands from artists and society.
I want to be the person whom I can tell my message, do what only I can do, be indifferent to what others think of, not fall into self-satisfaction, look hard whatever the weather, and create the artworks someone would like to keep in their hands. I’m looking forward to meeting your artworks on screening.
On the encounter between TERRRADA ART AWARD and young artists, I hope you challenge to change the existing art concepts and create unique works beyond genre and materials.
Everyone who will submit TERRADA ART AWARD, please send us the challenging pictures for initial screening. Though your motivation is invisible, we can feel your genius from your artworks. See you at the Award Ceremony!
