Awarded in Passion For Freedom London

Last Saturday on the 6th of October, I've received the bronze award during the Passion for Freedom ceremony for my painting "Courage".

I was especially happy as my work was unusually subtle in the context of other controversial and political works. I proposed a discussion about breaking free from all self-limiting beliefs and fears causing so many mental problems today. I was proud to receive it from Andrew Stahl, who beautifully said that:

"Important message doesn't need to be loud to be well heard. A subtle, quiet voice can be more powerful."

I very much appreciated the honour of this day.
This is a super important encouragement for my work. Thank you all who visited the exhibition!
