ARTIST OF THE MONTH – DECEMBER 2023 Winners
Peter Wiechenthaler . Italy
Peter Wiechenthaler was born in 1984 in Saalfelden in the Salzburger Land. He completed the Glas-HTL in Kramsach and the artistic advanced course for the Matura. Here he came into contact with nature, with his nature and the nature of glass. This is how his dream of creating glass sculptures came about. Before he could realize this dream, working on himself was more important. Only the path of personal development gave him the strength and courage to realize his dream. During this time he was a therapist, masseur and always creative. In 2022 he was able to realize his dream and started to create his glass sculptures. His strong connection to nature allows this piece of nature to merge with the glass. Glass pane by glass pane, the work of art grows upwards and Peter succeeds in creating an equally lively and organic form.
Via Li . USA
Via Li is a Cupertino-based painter who masterfully captures the nuanced emotions of women while addressing their daily struggles. With formal training and a background in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design, Via’s art unveils the hidden strength within emotional landscapes. Her work goes beyond representation, translating personal experiences into a visual chronicle that symbolizes both her journey and the collective resilience of women. Via’s evocative paintings, simultaneously beautiful and poignant, invite viewers to contemplate the intricate relationship between beauty and pain, prompting introspection into their own emotions and connections.
