We are very pleased to announce that ÀNI Art Academies artist (and current ÀNI Art Academies Dominicana Dean), Maxwell Miller, has been named a shortlisted finalist in the 2022 International FiKVA Award! This year’s shortlist contains 35 artists out of 1012 works from 65 different countries. The FiKVA-foundation (Figuratieve Kunst Vandaag) is a non-profit organization based in Antwerp. We are devoted to promoting contemporary realism and figurative arts. Gifted artists worldwide can enjoy our support.
The FiKVA-foundation aims to stimulate and encourage both emerging and well-established figurative artists. The artists of our tribe come from a broad spectrum of artistic backgrounds, practices, geographies, and communities. Together we focus on empowering their art career, regardless of their level of commercial success.
Its mission is fine-tuned to recognize, celebrate, uplift, and promote talented figurative and representational artists. We do that by creating greater opportunities and exposure for and general interest in figurative, representational, and realistic arts.
The International FiKVA Award for painters is a global online competition open to all artists age 18 or older worldwide. Enter the paintings produced in the last two years you are most proud of, and you could win up to €5000 in cash and other prizes!
The FiKVA Award welcomes entries in all genres: hyperrealism, photorealism, classical and modern realism, surrealism, and imaginative realism – as long as the artwork reads as representational and not stylized or abstract.
