“Frank Zappa” Smalti Mosaic 50x50cm
by Julian Modica from Marseille, France
Orsoni Smalti Veneziani is proud to announce the winners of the Orsoni Prize 2011, the International Award for Mosaic Fine Art. The Grand Prize has been awarded to Julian Modica for his portrait, Frank Zappa. Modica will receive Euro 1,000 and a trip to Venice, Italy to attend a 1 week Master in Mosaic workshop at Orsoni.
Artist’s statement: “In this work I combine different shades of primary colours together to create the colour of the skin. The interesting part of it is, how the eye of the spectator is re-organising the different colours to a unique colour.”
The jurors, Lucio Orsoni, Honorary President – Angelo Orsoni and Pino Bisazza, President – Trend Group chose ‘Frank Zappa’ because of the artist’s exceptional success in “giving an extraordinary mosaic atmosphere through the choice of a subject which is certainly not ‘mosaic’”.
