• JULIUS CAESAR IMPERATOR International Art Prize, From The Accademia Italia in Arte Nel Mondo.
The ceremony of High Academic Recognitions entitled to Julius Caesar is held at the prestigious “SALA APULIA” of the Grand   Hotel President of Lecce, Italy 30 June 2018. The Accademia Italia in Arte nel Mondo is proud to announce to you that your name is selected among over 5,000 Artists of all  Nations, for the “Candidacy” at the JULIUS CAESAR IMPERATOR International Art Prize
“If there is a prodigy in the life of each Artist, it is to achieve a goal through the alchemic spell of “Tenacity”, “Firmness” and    “Irreducibility”, believing solely in their will to risk everything, to make possible the attainment of a dream, which no one can   imagine which, except his mind. The Freedom of the thought of an Artist is closely linked to the individual ability to invest in  oneself, through the interpretation of one’s own contemporaneity. In Art, interpretive freedom is a function of vital solidarity. But in the world of Art, this vital solidarity also bears another name: it is called Love. Love for Painting, for Sculpture, and for all the Artistic Disciplines.”
