Big Steps

Each year Beautiful Bizarre Magazine runs an art prize for contemporary and representational artists. 

Now in its 5th year, is an annual non-acquisitive international art prize that celebrates diversity and excellence in the representational visual arts. It includes all static mediums including Traditional Art media, Digital Art media, and Photographic media; and all styles from realism and hyperrealism, to pop surrealism and lowbrow.

The Prize seeks to inspire creatives from around the world to pursue a life and career in the arts, and to help careers grow through funding and increased exposure of their work to galleries, collectors and media globally.

Every entry to the art prize is assessed by a select jury including co-founders of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Danijela Krha Purssey and Richard Purssey. In addition to Danijela and Richard other jurors comprise of influential figures in the art world, including gallerists, curators, artists, and commercial and philanthropic arts champions.

I’m delighted to announce that this year I have been selected to act as a juror for this prestigious art award. 

One of my goals with Quirky Fox is to provide a home for artists working in new contemporary and representative styles and introduce it to New Zealand and an international audience. Being recognised on a global stage is an incredible honour and allows me to better serve both the artists I work with and my customers.

I look forward to sharing this journey.

The Beautiful Bizarre Magazine Art Prize is still open to enter. Entires close 31 July 2022. Head to the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize website to enter.
