The distinguished members of the Jury

Csaba Vladar


Csaba Vladar Painter and Graphic Artist, Art Director, Art Therapist (born 1962 in Budapest) Art is either a "minimal" Pantheist or Deist and the Transcendent of faith origin- or, as you can see, atheist-neutral works of nonsense - none. Style and tone: From lyrical and dramatic fortress, pantheistic philosophy, soul - attempts to interpret world and myth on the basis of colorism and abstract conservative realism. Motto: Pondering in the silence of his home, he sets circles of wisdom and thus reveals the secrets of the creative mind. It measures matter and strength, magnetic attraction and repulsion, sounds in the air, followed by light through ether. That's how he searches intimate law in this wonderful accident and a point of rest among the phenomena of the hellish existence. Friedrich Schiller: The Walk (detail)

Toni Franović


Toni Franović (born in 1964 in Zagreb) could, due to his painting talent and choice of bold colourful emotion, be the son of Edi Murtić, however, he belongs to a completely different calibre of painting experience − historical temperament and the Pannonian climate. His origins are recorded in the surnames Rosenberger, Kreutzer, Kohn, Hirschl, Deutsch and Eisler, and range from the Styrian Prekmurje to Hungary, from Zalaegerszeg to Lendava, Beltinci and Murska Sobota: from Petanjci and Radenci to Radgona and Maribor to Ptuj, Čakovec, Zagreb and Legrad.

Ken Flewellyn


I’m primarily a realist oil painter. The actual process of creating my paintings is intensive. A finished painting will normally have 100+ hours of work put into it. I’ve refined this process over years of painting. Even as I get faster, I find a way to reinvest that time into making a better product. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and slightly obsessed but I love it. They’re fun pieces to make.
