New Era Cap Co. is excited to announce the winner of the New Era Introducing creative project- artist Marconi Calindas of San Francisco. He will receive a $10,000 grant to assist in launching his artistic career. After being presented with a blank 59FIFTY for Phase 2, all finalists were tasked with creating an original piece of art. Marconi used his distinct rendering technique, utilizing pure bright hues and black outlets, with a bold visual vocabulary to help the viewer to feel the tragedy of a life lost. He explained that he was moved by the tragedy of teen suicide and depicted that in his design (pictured right). The winning design, along with the other finalist’s designs, will be on display in Toronto, Canada November 10th from 12-7pm at the Edward Day Gallery located on 952 Queen Street West #200.
