Italian award for artist André Romijn

ART NOW , an Palermo based Italian Art magazine, establishes the ‘Artista dell’Anno – Creatività, Palermo Artexpo 2020’ (Artist of the Year Award – Creativity, Palermo Artexpo). An award that will be dedicated every year to illustrious personalities from the world of art and culture, who thanks to their works have contributed, in the year 2020, to enrich the national artistic heritage.

A great artistic event designed to offer the artist admitted to the project a complete disclosure of his work.

The prestigious award consists of a Plexiglas plaque (15 × 21 cm) personalized with the artists name with the reproduction of the selected work, together with the publication of a work on a page of the bimonthly art and culture magazine ART NOW (January / February 2021).

On February 26, all the works selected for this Award, has been video exhibited in the premises of the Effetto Arte Gallery in Palermo. One of the artist who was selected for this Italian award is André Romijn, with his painting Elvira. André is from The Netherlands, but lives and works in Tuscany, Italy.



The intense look is the characteristic of “Elvira” that with her green and small eyes spreads a brilliant atmosphere given also by the almost gold background that call to mind the “Giuditta” of the Austrian artist Klimt. In this case, the play of colors give great importance to the thick head of hair of the woman that are wear in a ponytail that underlines the facial features and the fair skin that blends with the white shirt.
