Western Paintings

Each painting shall be a showcase of the artist’s own cultural heritages and/or country.

Impressions of the World painting entrants shall apply refined/classical painting techniques to depict their impressions of their lives, country, society and/or culture. This could include traditions, historical events or legends, local communities, art craftsmanship, daily life, cities, towns or villages.

Due to the nature of the theme, and to best illustrate the cultural subjects and understandings of the world’s societies, we are only accepting styles of Realism, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic with depictive narrations. An uplifting painting with an insightful message and storyline is highly desirable.

All registered participants will be invited to Talent Week activities in California.

Finalists are qualified for the Impressions of World Exhibition Tour, and private art sales events. Based on qualifications, the semi-finalists will be notified upon the exhibition and artwork sales opportunities, as well as special event invitations. All submitted paintings are qualified for online public exhibition. The details are to be announced.
