Start­ing sum­mer 2019, I have the great hon­or of being includ­ed in the BP Por­trait Award. As Nation­al Por­trait Gallery proud­ly state in their press release: “After 30 years, the BP Por­trait Award still remains the most pres­ti­gious por­trait paint­ing com­pe­ti­tion in the world and rep­re­sents the very best in con­tem­po­rary prac­tice.” After two judg­ing rounds, I was select­ed as one of 44 exhibitors from a total of 2538 appli­cants from 84 coun­tries.
