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!

A lone astronaut cascades down toward the ocean's surface, his trusty inflatable pink flamingo rescuing him from a watery grave.
This is a somewhat triumphant moment - it looks like he's going to be alright! - but IS he?
Andreas Claussen's (@andy.claussen) bold palette is just as delicious as the meaty subtext of his "Flood"-themed body of work which instantly sparks some very necessary conversations about the state of the rapidly changing environment, the most prominent one being: "How is humanity going to adapt?"
Wisely, the oil painter balances this sobering topic with just the right dose of humor, resulting in a dynamic array of paintings - featured in his new art book, "Flood" (link below) that make a quite a visual and intellectual impact.
