Join us for the third annual Dark Arts Themed Competition! We are asking artists to revisit and explore taboo art themes as well as the relationship between art and trauma, mental health, mortality, morality and dreams. For inspiration this year we are asking you to explore “L'appel du vide /The Call of The Void” and what it means to you, these fleeting dark thoughts centered on mortality and conscience. This is an open medium show, artists of all mediums are welcomed to participate (Including but not limited to, painting, drawing, digital art, sculpture, photography video and sound artists and more). We will be accepting work with mature themes and nudity. Due to the nature of the theme you must be 18 years or older to enter this competition 16 years with Parental/Guardian Consent form (International). Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about your submissions.
