Pavel Braila Artist from Moldova, Won Celeste Prize 2013


International contemporary arts prize

at FIENAROLI 28, Rome, Italy, 7-15 December 2013

Organised by Celeste Network

On Saturday 7 December hundreds of arts lovers gathered with Celeste Prize finalists and the prize curator Ami Barak to determine with  their votes this year’s winners who received 20.000 € in cash prizes. Comment by the prize’s chief curator, Ami Barak:

"After a virtual existence, the works of artists shortlisted for Celeste Prize 2013 came to life on the walls of Spazio FIENAROLI 28 in Rome. The exhibition has proven to be rich and strong in spirit, and has shown that the choice of winners made by the artists themselves was fair and that their high quality led to the awards that motivated the participation of so many artists. Among them we found emerging artists, in the early days of their career, but also established artists. More importantly the works resonated with great intelligence and sophistication which proves that talent nowadays is not only aesthetic but also intellectual."
