Art of ITALICUS 2021 - Creative Talent Competition

It's BACK! Following on from our successful partnership with Italicus last year, Moniker Culture bring you Cities Reimagined, the 2021 Creative Talent Competition calling on all artists across the globe to reimagine the city’s landscape and personality through the lens of Italicus.

ITALICUS and Moniker Culture have also partnered with five emerging artists who have created their own Cities Reimagined works of art to galvanize fellow artists and kick off the competition. They include pieces from Mr.Penfold (Miami), Vix Black (Milan), Roxanne Dewar (Barcelona), Luke Smiles (London) and Thomas Kirk Shannon (New York) and will be released via Instagram during the campaign.

To take part, artists are asked to select one city from the following list: Rome, Milan, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, London, Barcelona, Paris, Sydney, Berlin, Athens, Tokyo, Hong Kong, or Moscow; their choice could be the city they currently live in, have visited or feel inspired by. While depicting the landscapes and iconic buildings of their chosen destination, artists are encouraged to rediscover the rich traditions behind ITALICUS Rosolio di Bergamotto to create their piece of art.

Artworks may be submitted via this link from July 5th until August 3rd. Members of the public will vote for their favourite piece of work, then shortlisted candidates will be evaluated by a panel of judges. In honour of the 5th anniversary of ITALICUS, the celebrations will culminate on September 1st with the unveiling of the competition’s 14 winners, with each receiving a £1,000 prize.
