Just like last year, we’ve received many DM’s and emails from our community asking for an extension to the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize entries deadline, for lots of reasons but mostly due to the mental exhaustion cause by the ongoing COVID pandemic. You asked, and we listened! Entries for the 2021 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize now close this Saturday 31 July 2021 at midnight [Los Angeles, USA time / 5pm 1 August [Sydney, Australia time].
Just complete the relevant entry form in one of the four Award categories: Traditional Art, Digital Art, Photography or Sculpture.
Giving the practices of representational artists validation and visibility, particularly in the commercial gallery and museum sector where it is still hard to get representation, is what the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize aims to achieve.
This is the perfect opportunity to get your work in front of myself, Editor-in-Chief of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine – I curate each issue of the magazine, and the Directors of Haven Gallery in New York. PLUS see your work published in Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, share in over US$45,000 in cash and amazing prizes, advertising packages, and of course receive global exposure for your practice.
Please note this will be the final and only deadline extension, so quick get your entries in. We can’t wait to see your work!

Lebanon-born, Los Angeles-based Analy Nakat's (@analynakat) intricately rendered India ink drawing, "The Devil", is perfectly reflective of her wicked-cool tattoo artistry.
Take a look at her profile to ogle all of the diverse tattoo-based inkwork that she's done, too...very impressive!
See Analy's beautiful black and white illustration in person at @palettesf.gallery, where it is nestled among a vast array of other dark art-themed pieces as part of "The Evil Among Us" exhibition, co-curated by @shaneizykowskiartist.
The theme of Palette Gallery's art show revolves around the dark forces that exist in our daily lives and the rituals of apotropaic magic - rather perfect for the autumnal season that we're heading into!

INSIDE ISSUE 34 // “Strangely, the type of feedback that influenced me the most was the negative kind, even though I don't remember anything in particular. It worked like a cluster that formed a black cloud that hovered constantly over my head. As much as this affected me, it's curious that after a while it became a kind of an amulet that grew and fed my desire to continue.”

“I was watching a production of the opera Armida by Rossini and there was this amazing scene where Armida (a powerful sorceress) has led a soldier she’s fallen in love with back to her vast enchanted pleasure palace and her nymphs perform a routine where they elaborately tease and dance around the soldier, tossing a myriad of apples over and around him in a hypnotic display of keep away.”
Besides @kliuwong being an all-time favorite, we truly appreciate the detailed explanation the artist shares about this particular piece. Kristen, who is known for her poppy color palette and surreal compositions, includes a range of both visible and hidden elements in her work that add up symbolically to the narrative of each painting.
Work in progress by @kim_slate for the upcoming Beautiful Bizarre exhibition 'Animalia'.

One great way to support your favorite artists (that won't break the bank) is to buy a t-shirt splashed with their imagery.🖤
Think about all of the people who will stop you on the street and say, "Cool t-shirt - who created the art?"
That's the perfect opportunity to get strangers (and friends) hooked on a new-to-them artist.
One thing will lead to another and BOOM, your favorite artist will score a few new fans and possibly even a commission or two!
In the spirit of spreading the good artsy word, we give you @justingedak's🕸️"Goth Girl"🕷️, which is now available on an appropriately inky black 100% ringspun cotton t-shirt via @designbyhumans (see image #2 in this post).
We likey. We likey verrry much.
Support your artsy peeps, please. Even buying 'just a t-shirt' is a really nice way to say, "Hey...I really like what you're doing." 👍
