Remus, who resides in Frankfurt, began winning his most recent awards, five of them (four in art), within a year!

"It is amazing and crazy at the same time. I won four art awards within ten months. Three of the competitions were by leading magazines and one by an online gallery.

For years I haven’t won any awards, and now four at the same time, plus a fifth one on poetry!"

This talented artist's first win, in March 2013, was from the art contest, “AcrylicWorks - Best of Acrylic Painting” by "The Artist’s Magazine."

"My piece of art that won was 'Expression of Cologne' (see slideshow). More on that is found at North Light Shop."

The second win was in August, and it was an Honorable Mention in the competition by the online gallery "The Leading Artist Gallery." The competition was called "Cityscapes."

"The piece of Frankfurt that won is called 'Frankfurt Balance 1.' That win can be found at Leading Artists Gallery."

The third award was in December, and the art contest "Incite 2 - Best of Color" was by the Artist’s Magazine. Remus won with two pieces. The annual will come out in fall 2014. More info found here at Artist's Network.

"I won with two pieces that time. One on Mexico called 'Regions of Mexico' and the other 'Frankfurt City Hall.' The winners have not been announced officially yet, but we have received the information and have cleared all the paperwork already, so that will be announced in a few weeks."

Remus' fourth win, was two days ago, Jan. 25, by bi-monthly magazine "Art Ascent Magazine." The triptychs, from the exhibition "Frankfurt in the Box," had been presented in early 2013, and he won the competition themed "Home."

"I won the art contest called 'Home' by art magazine 'Art Ascent.' I chose the triptychs since they showed my hometown, Frankfurt. Readers can find out more on Facebook.

The issue hasn’t come out yet. It will be the Feb. edition."
