Two of Medici’s Works Reach Finals in Fusion Arts…

The new year has gotten off to a pretty good start for Medici.

Aside from completing new pieces, such as Calm (48” x 24” acrylic on canvas), as well as the initial phase of his upcoming “#Plant” series, two of Medici’s works were chosen for inclusion in Fusion Arts online competitions.

Medici’s Families Upside Down, an amalgamation of three separate pieces totaling 12 individual panels (acrylic on canvas, 22” x 18”), was chosen as a finalist in Fusion Art’s 4th Annual Colors Online Juried Art Exhibition held this month.

“Putting yourself ‘out there’ is always a little uncomfortable,” says Medici, who continues his “Venture in Vulnerability,” the title of his first show held in late 2018.

Fusion Arts’ website hosts uniquely themed monthly and quarterly solo and group art competitions and exhibitions, while providing artists with worldwide exposure and the opportunity to compete for additional exhibition opportunities and awards.

Last month, Black Rain (mixed media, acrylic on canvas, 38” x 40”) was chosen as a finalist for Fusion Arts’ 5th Annual Artist’s Choice Online Juried Art Exhibition.

“It doesn’t matter if you are entering an international competition or showing a new piece privately, there’s always some level of vulnerability there,” adds Medici.

Dashboard Auctioned Off for a Good Cause

Medici’s 2017 mixed media Dashboard was featured in a silent auction to raise money for a Los Angeles-based charter school.

The artist donated the artwork after it received rave reviews during his most recent show, “Venture in Vulnerability,” which was held at Santa Monica Art Studios.

“I love the energy the piece gives off,” said the painting’s new owner. “This is my first real piece of artwork I own and thrilled to have won it in the bidding process. The school is focused on the arts so the proceeds are going to a good cause.”

Dashboard (38″ x 26″) was created to be hung vertically or horizontally, allowing viewers to experience two different perspectives.
