For years artists have struggled to get their art on gallery walls.
Now in this modern-day, young artists use digital platforms to get their work seen globally. And one Caymanian is getting well-deserved recognition on this front.
To celebrate 25 years of the graphic design programme “Photoshop” global computer software giant “Adobe” launched a world-wide competition called “Ps 25 under 25” in order to search for the most creative graphic artists around the world who are under 25.
Cayman’s own 15-year-old Brandon Saunders was the 23rd artist to be picked out of 25 and strongly recommends that Cayman’s talent pool submit to global competitions.
“I think it is a necessity that we must at least enter them, and make the world aware of who we are and that we are not just a small country and that we are able to do great things per se. So I can only encourage the young people out there that they should definitely enter things like this because you are not only just representing yourself, you’re representing your country that a lot of people might not know about,” said Graphic artist, Brandon Saunders.
Mr. Saunders says this award has given him credibility to work in marketing firms as a graphic designer.
