The gallery’s competition for April 2022 was the 12th Annual “Figurative” Online Art Competition. 2D and 3D, artists, (including photography & digital art) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s May 2022 online group art exhibition.

Artists were asked for their interpretation of the “Figurative” theme by submitting their best abstract and/or representational art for this competition. The submission process and competition for the artists began in March 2022 and concluded on April 27, 2022.

The gallery received 730 entries from 25 different countries from around the world, as well as from 30 different states and the District of Columbia.   

The exhibition has been divided into three media categories.  Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3 Dimensional Art categories.  In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from all the media categories.

The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.

All winning entries will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of May 2022. Thereafter, the artworks and links to the artist’s websites will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives.

Congratulations to our artists who made our 12th Annual “Figurative” Art Exhibition so successful this month. At any time, we invite our winning artists and other interested visitors to link their websites to the Gallery’s archive page for further ongoing promotion.

Special Merit Award Category

These are the artists and their artwork which we felt could easily have been placed higher but due to the size constraints in each media category, this art was placed in this special category.  Any of the Special Merit art, in many cases, is interchangeable with the best art that we selected for the top tiers. To view these artists and artwork, please go to the results in the Figurative Art Exhibition “Special Merit Award Category” here.

Artist Biography:

Paulo Delgado is known for his faceless figures that intrigues his audience. He was born in Mozambique and grew up in a little village in Portugal. He completed his degree in Graphic Design and worked in that area for almost 20 years. In 2010, he immigrated to Canada.

“I like to paint the everyday life of the country that took me in. The light and the colour of the prairie sky is so impressive.”

By simplifying each figure, he can capture their essence. The backgrounds are made up of geometric shapes and lines that contrasts with the central figures.

Artist Statement:

With a 20-year career in Graphic Design, my paintings reflect my acquired habits in this profession. I am a self-taught painter and never received any formal training. Acrylic is my chosen medium and I have worked to perfect my technique using this medium. I like the simplification of form and the shapes take in a poster-like feeling.

The face is the mirror of the soul and with it, we can understand their state of mind. The simplification of the face is done on purpose. It is incredibly challenging to use shapes and colour to transmit what is in your soul.

Some of my favourite themes include landscapes and the Portuguese ethnography. I also enjoy exploring the colours of the Manitoba prairies. The light of the skies fascinates me and inspires me, especially sunsets. The use of geometric shapes in the background’s contrasts with the main figures in the foreground as if it were a set of a play. The use of strong colours and different nuances is a constant in my work. Painting for me is a stress reliever which allows me to relax and find balance in my everyday life. I want to tell stories through my painting.
