“Champgne-Supernova” by Abhishek Durani

Title: Champgne-Supernova
Artist: Abhishek Durani
Award: MasterCrafter

Jury’s Comments:
There is unusual beauty here – a celestial body that is quite literally our own body. The artist gets carried away with too many digital visual devices but the idea of a celestial human still remains compelling. With further simplification and maturity we can expect some great abstraction in the future from this artist.
