Award 2017

The Social Art Award 2017

Can art change the world?

Under this question, the Institute for Art and Innovation e.V. had launched the first Social Art Award in 2017. Artists and cultural actors of all areas were invited to apply with their work to the field of social art. Artists from 131 countries responded with extraordinary works and projects.

On September 5, 2017, the three winners Lino Tonelotto from France, Quek Jia Qi from Singapore and Diogo da Cruz from Portugal were honored, and exhibited at WHITECONCEPTS Gallery in Berlin. They demonstrated with their politically engaged works that art can make current events visible and tangible. This is an important understanding for bringing forward the debate and thus a social change.

Description:
I will go taking a photo, enlarging its size, and finally developing it into my art work. Thus, my art work is created by my own experiences and feelings influenced by the social community that happened in Hashima island, Japan. It is full of details as the beauty of nature is so artistic, sophisticated, and imaginative. The details will show the nature’s stuffs ,community ,social and its movement. Effectively, it is made by drawing and painting on digital print technique. The outcome of this technique can successfully reflect my emotions and imagination as its process is very complicated and in detail, so it shows the nature’s textures and art’s elements beautifully and effectively. Thus, I decide to use this technique to make it outstanding and attractive.
