The Blue Koi Gallery would like to welcome you to the International “Bold Colors” Art Competition. This online competition is all about  shades that are exceptionally strong with emotion, intense, and lively. These colors are typically highly saturated, which means they have a strong and pure hue, often appearing to be at their maximum brightness. They draw attention and create a strong visual impact. Bold colors are often used to convey a dynamic and lively mood. You can use different mediums like paints, sculptures, digital art, prints, photos, and mixed Media art. Let’s see your reds, yellows and all the spectrums that make a bold dramatic impact on your canvas.

Submit your artwork by January 31, 2024.
