THE GLOBAL ART AWARDS 2017 : Janice Alamanou

Janice Alamanou Fine Art Photography, Limited Editions and Unique Pieces - now with 24ct Gold Gilding, possibly the ‘1st ever’ with photography.

Born and raised on the windswept coast of North Norfolk, UK, Janice started photographing from a young child and her art has evolved over years of experience. Alongside her photographs she now experiments with new techniques and materials, pushing the boundaries of photography by combining it with metals.

She exhibits Internationally and has her own Gallery, 88 Staithe Street, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk. NR23 1AQ UK, in her home town.

Tell us about your nominated art piece for the Global Art Awards? ’Gold Leaf’ is possibly the ‘1st ever’ Photograph with 24ct Gold Gilding.  A unique, one only, black and white tree image with colour autumnal leaves, some falling, representing and triggering feeling and meaning.

How would you react if you win a Global Art Award at the Armani Dubai Burj Khalifa surrounded by international Press and the Elite from the Art World? It is an honour to be nominated for these awards - to win a Global Art Award would be the best day of my life. I love what I do and hope this shines through in my artwork and for professional bodies to recognise this in such spectacular surroundings and against International Artists would be life changing.

Where do you get your inspiration? Inspiration comes from the environment and people around me. Each photograph has a meaning and a reason behind it. I create art as my life leads and my heart dictates, which leads to varied style and technique as my artistry evolves. For me, my artwork must trigger something from within, to create feeling and to make the viewer look and look deeper - the intensity of a still image.

Can you tell us what you have going on right now? I am now concentrating on creating an exclusive range of photography with Gold Gilding. Each will be a unique piece of art.
