2023 WATERMARK ART CONTEST WINNER

James Stark

In regards to his winning piece, James explains “I have been working on the idea of combining photographs to make a new image but nothing satisfactory came of it – but I kept trying. Late last year, 2022, I came to the realization that the secret lay in the layers mode of Photoshop. I set about learning layers and things fell into place and soon I was creating images that I and others liked. Earlier this year I received an e-mail about the contest to create art for the cover of the Watermark magazine and I set about working on that.

Over the past several years I have photographed the ‘Taste The Arts’ festival and decided to use images I shot of the Lumberyard and combine them with the result of winning the Watermark Art Contest for 2023.”

PAST WATERMARK ART CONTEST WINNERS

The Watermark Art Contest started as an art contest for a Taste The Arts poster and the art would have been featured as the Watermark magazine’s cover. Through the years, one thing has stayed consistent — great art from great artists!
