Feeger paints PNG to the top

By JASON GIMA WURI

A PAPUA New Guinea contemporary artist has won an arts battle competition in Shanghai, China, The National reports.
Jeffery Feeger, pictured working on his painting of an Angolan woman at the competition venue in Shanghai, was lost for words when his name was announced last weekend.
“I was awarded RMB 2,000 for my efforts in what was the most intense three hours I have ever painted,” Feeger said in an email to his family and friends back home in PNG.
“It was a packed house with artists creating all forms of contemporary art from photography to textile, graffiti, performance, body art, projection, water colour and acrylic,” he wrote.
“A truly unique experience and I am glad everything fell into place for me.”
The competition drew artists from the Pacific, Asia and Europe.

  2. Congratulations, Jeff. This is how we should also be recognizing and rewarding our artists back here at home.
