The Wow! Factor
This is what I mean by the Wow! factor. Girl with an iPod (iDeath) is an oil painting with acrylic background on canvas by Czech artist Michal Ožibko. It won the Visitors' Choice prize at this year’s BP Portrait Award exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in London. As a point of interest arising from my previous blog on technical interaction and art, this is the first year visitors were able to vote on a touchscreen just outside the entrance. The BP Portrait Award continues until 19 September, admission free. Click the title link to see the runners up for Visitors' Choice.
