Nigel Kingsbury has developed a successful artistic career since being crowned an Outside In Award Winner in 2012. He creates fine, delicate portraits depicting women as mystical goddesses attired in glamorous ball gowns, decadent outfits and floating dresses.
Many of Manuel Bonifacio’s works reflect his childhood ambition of joining the army; depicting helicopters, aeroplanes, motorbikes and boats. It also helps him expose his unique view to the world. He is continuously creating one piece after another; a drawing, a ceramic, a painting, and his experimentation is equally as admirable as his obvious inquisitiveness.
