We are ecstatic beyond words that James Picard, the 2017 Grand Prize winner at the 8th Annual New Media Film Festival Los Angeles was recently offered 1 Million USD for one of his paintings that is part of The Dark & the Wounded Series.
“My series the Dark & The Wounded has always been about helping to create a positive change on the planet. It’s about dealing with our issues as individuals, as a society and as a species on the planet. It’s about understanding and healing, and looking at things we’ve been afraid to acknowledge. By facing our reality, getting past our fears and finding freedom, it creates an understanding and compassion for others. It is an invaluable and humbling quest I have been on and it’s been wonderful to see it evolve into something that is creating such an incredible impact, awareness and definitive difference.”
