Mona Lisa Featured on Gioconda Project Webpage
For those who follow my Facebook page, you may have already seen that I have entered a piece of work into the Gioconda Project, an exciting international project uniting a whole host of artists from all over the world in drawing artwork inspired by one of the most recognisable portraits of all time – The Mona Lisa.
I actually found out about this competition from an artist on Deviant Art and immediately decided I wanted to be a part of it. Seeing so many of the artistic interpretations that went before me, however, I really did not expect to be accepted. I drew my own version of the famous smile and sent it off and within a few hours had received an e-mail from the organizers saying that it had been accepted!
So many artists have already taken part in this project and I am really proud to be counted among them. Please take the opportunity to visit the Gioconda Project site and give my piece a look. And, while you’re there, be sure to look through some of the other amazing entries.
The Gioconda Project is hoping to publish selected artworks in a book in 2014, followed by possibly displaying the work in a European gallery.
