Giorgia Marzi (Italy) prize winner of the international category
“Seu Lady”, 30 x 45 cm watercolor by Giorgia Marzi from Italy.
During the competition a street celebration is organized presenting different forms of art, including a Seu parade. When Giorgia came to deliver her already finished painting, she saw the local lady dressed in her Seu traditional attire. Impressed, she took back out her painting gear, asked the lady to be her model and quickly produced the painting that won the first prize international category.
