Is it art? No. It's Beanz
Exceptional response to our competition. My heart! My art!
Last week we hosted a live pub quiz and thought it would be nice to have a bonus art round. The task was to draw/paint a can of baked beans and several hundred of you delivered. Your entries were very impressive and I really struggled to choose a winner. So I chose three.
In third place: Cara Ovens and her Edvard Munch-inspired 'The Beanz'
Congratulations Cara, you win a video message in which I will say exactly five words. Choose wisely.
The judge was impressed by the topicality of the work.
In second place: Thomas Kostecki and his 'Mount Fuji Bean Eruption'
Congrats Thomas, you get a video message with 10 words. Choose carefully.
The judge was impressed by the inclusion of two icons: PAPSRSOD and Fuji-san.
And finally, first place goes to Megan Tudor's Dali beans
A fine piece of art Megan. You get a video message of a whole paragraph. Enjoy.
The judge was impressed by the inclusion of a shout-out for the digital business he partly owns.
All of the submitted artworks will form the basis of a special exhibition at London's South Bank Centre entitled 'Beanz imitating life'.
