BE OPEN Art is happy to announce its 2021 Artist of the Year, selected by the biggest vote among the monthly ratings.
Our congratulations and the €500 prize go to Carlos Rodisnel Rodríguez, visual artist from Cuba.
Aiming to showcase young talents, every month of 2021 BE OPEN Art invited art enthusiasts to choose the best artist among those exhibited in the online gallery. The artist whose works gained a majority of votes throughout the year was then named the Artist of the Year.
To be featured in the gallery, BE OPEN Art selects artists at an early stage of their career who emphasize social consciousness, philosophical meaning and the aesthetical solutions for the wrongs of the contemporary world, such as inequality, lack of diversity, environmental issues, and consumerism. In a way, the project sees its mission in looking for the new influencers in the art scene, and invites everyone to contribute to this process.
