1st Place Award, Beverly Hills Affaire in the Gardens winner
Andy Anh Ha is awarded with the 1st place ribbon within the painting category for the fourth time in 5 years. It is always a great feeling to receive this award, says Anh Ha. It just goes to show how well respected and recognized Andy’s paintings are. Considering that the Beverly Hills Affaire in the Gardens is one of the most prestigious art events in the country, only accepting 250 artist out of thousands of applicants. It is remarkable that Andy continues to impress the panel of judges consisting of musuem curators, university professors, acclaimed artists, and many other highly placed individuals in the art community. The constant work within his studio to push his creativity is awarded year after year. “The highest achievement of my career has been obtaining the Gil Gorbos Award for Most Original in 2007, being the first to create such works that have rarely been seen is a great feeling” Along with the 1st place award and sales in numbers rarely seen, Anh Ha’s works are constantly imitated. Such in the way in which he creates boxed frames with wood panels and studs, to the high gloss clear acrylic polymer he uses and the unique manner of multiple layers of mixed mediums. These other artist seem to believe imitation is a form of flattery, but in reality, it’s just sheer robbery. Congratulations to Anh Ha’s continued success.
