‘Sea Turtles’ by Anand Binda

Visual artist Anand Binda‘s work Sea Turtles won an award during the ShowArt Internacional en Gijón 2013. This was an exhibition in Gijón, Spain, fromMarch 4-April 4, 2013, where many South American countries participated. ShowArt Internacional is run by an Argentine art organization. A panel consisting of three art experts chose Binda’s work from a selection of forty works.

It is the third time Anand Binda works with this organization. The way ShowArt Internacional works is as follows: the organization approches artists whose work they have seen on websites. They make a selection and invite the artist to send a digital image of the work which is printed on canvas ensuring a high quality reproduction. The participating artists pay an entrance fee and part of the revenues is donated to a good cause. For instance, when Anand Binda participated in Mexico, a donation was made for Mexican children who live on the street.
