1st Place – Overall – Branka Grubić – “Just Breathe”

 

Croatian artist Branka Grubić has won an American online art gallery competition with her work beating 890 entries others from 33 countries around the world…

The self-taught artist from Šibenik won the The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery competition for her piece “Just Breathe”.

Grubić will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of January 2016 and thereafter, her artworks and link to her website will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives.

Branka grew up in Šibenik in the 1980’s. Her painting began as a teenager, but her career did not really begin until her early-30s. Branka’s paintings are contemporary and have a universal appeal to men and women of all cultures.

The work consists of layers of paint and imagery that exude to energy and life. The viewer is drawn into a world filled with movement, a signature style illustrating Branka’s ability to juxtapose abstract mixed media with the feminine figure.

Charity is also a high priority for artist Branka Grubić. She donated her art to several charitable events and causes.

Continuous positive reception of Branka’s work is also evident in corporate settings with many leading organizations. Critics have said, “Similar to her pop art predecessors, Branka’s brightly colored abstracts and photo-paintings do not demand anything from us. They reflect ourselves back to us. They allow us to fill in the blanks with our own stories. Perhaps it is this lack of an agenda that appeals to such a giant segment of the population.”
