October 4 is the new closing date for sending in your photos to the competition we are organizing on Flickr, the photography social network that lets you share pictures with other internet users. Specifically, we are looking for images in which the emphasis is on colour, and inviting you to send in up to a maximum of 5 photos, inspired by the art of the Fauves, to coincide with the current exhibition of work by the Dutch artist Kees van Dongen at the Museu Picasso.
So far quite a number of ‘Fauvist’ artists have been inspired to take part in this latest initiative launched by the Museum. To date the group boasts more than 70 participants from around the world, ranging from Catalonia to Germany to Japan and the USA, who together have submitted over 200 snapshots: colours, colours and more colours, in dazzling contrast, embracing the most original and diverse moments and motifs, in the form of landscapes, travel photos, abstract art… there are no limits! These are just a taster.
Images by Corinna Wagner (Germany), Oriol Salvador (Barcelona) and Tod Rollins (USA).
So, please send us your pictures, original or retouched, with the most Fauvist stamp you can give them, making the most of the colours, contrasting and modifying them to bring to life that really eye-grabbing shot. We look forward to posting a sample of the best on the Museu Picasso website, and the creators of the top five will each receive a free Museu Picasso Member’s Card.
All you have to do is your send contribution to our Become a Fauvist group! You still have time until October 4.
