The Quote:

If I am not mistaken, the word “art” and “artist” did not exist during the Renaissance and before: there were simply architects, sculptors, and painters, practicing a trade.

— M.C. Escher, graphic artist

Sixty-nine paintings were selected by the jury to compete for the winning prize in World Wide Kitsch’s very first painting competition.
Jury’s Choice went to Boris Correa for his painting “A Woman in the Shadows.”
