EXHIBITION JUDGE

viewpoint judge

Cesar Santos
(Self portrait shown)

We are privileged to have Cesar Santos as our final awards judge. His art education is worldly and his work has been seen around the globe, from the Annigoni Museum in Italy and the Beijing Museum in China to Chelsea NY and the National Gallery in Costa Rica. He attended the Angel Academy of Art in Florence studying under Michael John Angel, a student of artist Pietro Annigoni. Santos’ work reflects both classical and modern interpretations juxtaposed within one painting. His influences range from the Renaissance to the masters of the nineteenth century to contemporary art. With superb technique, he infuses a harmony between the natural and the conceptual to create works that are provocative and dramatic.

Santos has received numerous accolades, including first place in a Metropolitan Museum of Art competition, and he was recently presented with the Miami Dade College Hall of Fame Award in Visual Arts.
