”Gioconda Project” is a non-profit artistic experiment with a creative international flare, showcasing high quality artwork from artists known or anonymous from all over the globe, with the attempt to bring Contemporary Art to everyone through one of the most famous works of art in history “La Gioconda”.
The objective is to have artists to convey the essence of “La Gioconda” in the preferred style and technique they are most comfortable with, such as oil, watercolour, acrylic, collage, pencil, photography, sculpture, installations, 3D etc…
Artists may submit up to 3 works of art in different techniques of their choosing. The artworks have to be created by the artists. We do not accept simple retouching with Photoshop or photo retouching over the original artwork of La Gioconda.
The ”Gioconda Project” was launched in October 2012, inviting all artists to submit their work until the end of the October 2013. During this period all works selected by the ”Gioconda Project” will be published online.
Once the submission period has ended, the best and most voted works of art will be selected with the intention of exposing and publish them in a collective way. The final voting process will be decided in the last project’s stage.
The initiative being an experiment without profit consists of three stages.
1) To receive the works from artists until we’ve got enough to consider the initiative as a relevant project.
2) To set up a “Public relations” campaign in media related to disseminate the project.
3) We will seek help to publish and/or expose the selected works (This will depend on the success of the project).
We appreciate the confidence and participation of all artists, this project wouldn’t be successful without them.
