Levan Songulashvili is among the winners of the “Strokes of Genius”. The artist’s two pieces, “Dionise” (2018) and “Face” (2017) were chosen by Steven Assael, the editorial staff of North Light Books and Artists Magazine. The both works are representative of Songulashvili’s unique character as an artist.

The theme for “Strokes of Genius 11” is Finding Beauty and may be broadly interpreted.

“From quick contour sketches to carefully rendered drawings with a full range of values, we will showcase the best of the best in a variety of styles and subjects,” says the competition website.
