Finalists and Winners of The Head On Portrait Award 2021

Jenni Bruce at her burnt home

‘It was all gone,’ she said. ‘I had a great workshop with tools that I had spent a lifetime gathering. I had a huge collection of paints and canvases, and I was working on a new body of work to exhibit. It was just devastating to lose that amount of hard work … I wish the people in power would listen; I wish they would stop using industries that are so bad for our environment.’ Photograph: Gideon Mendel

Heath

“I made this portrait of Indigenous actor Heath Bergersen with natural light and a portable background in the backyard of his suburban home. Beyond the backdrop, the world was tumbling into turmoil with the Black Lives Matter movement raging on city streets both here and abroad. The weight of history matches the intent seen within the actor’s eyes.” Photograph: Brett Canet-Gibson

Halima

“In 2018 an armed group attacked Halima’s village in Borno state, Nigeria, killed her parents in front of her and abducted her. She was 13. ‘It was very difficult; they beat me, they refused to feed me,” she said. Forcing her to wear a suicide vest, they told her to run and push the detonator as soon as she met others. But one of her abductors took pity on her, removed the vest and let her go.” Photograph: Marko Kokic/Unicef

Mina

Sajeda and Asma

“Sajeda and her daughter Asma are Rohingya refugees now living in Lakemba, western Sydney. The two remember travelling to Australia on a small boat packed with 100 other refugees encircled by sharks. Sajeda held her breath and kept her year-old son tied tightly to her waist. After Asma, who was 10 at the time, asked, ‘Are we all going to die?’, Sajeda thought, ‘If Allah saves me, I’m never putting my children in danger again.’” Photograph: Mridula Amin

Donoghue brothers, Galway, Ireland

Bidhan/acid attack survivor

“Bidhan, 60 years old at the time of this photo, was the owner of a small food shop in Thana, in the Khulna district of Bangladesh. In 2003, when a criminal gang raided his shop, Bidhan gave them his daily proceeds without any resistance. But the criminals still beat him brutally and threw industrial acid on his head. His eyes, face, neck, chest, back, arms and legs were injured. He received multiple surgeries funded by the Acid Survivors Foundation.” Photograph: Erberto Zani

Amanda and Mohannad, from ‘Undercover’

“‘The mandate to wear masks made me think about the historical legacy of wearing masks in cultures worldwide, allowing for storytelling and new personas. It reminded me of the humorous paper bag masks created by illustrator Saul Steinberg in the 1950s. I asked friends to make paper bag masks, and the results revealed new sides to them and documented how art can shift moods even in the darkest of days.’” Photograph: Aline Smithson

Finding Dorothy

“An abandoned trampoline, hidden among the overgrown roadside brush. Dorothy can be found here – contemplating life or perhaps just looking for what is beyond the mesh of the stretchy blue mat.” Photograph: Rowena Meadows

Umaru Sandi – Flying Stars amputee footballers of Sierra Leone

“Thousands of civilians had their legs, arms or hands forcibly amputated by rebel soldiers or removed by landmines and bullets during Sierra Leone’s civil war. The Flying Stars amputees are a group of football teams across the country whose players are victims of civil war amputations. Football has brought them joy, confidence and hope for a better future for disabled people. This is Umaru Sandi, captain of the Flying Stars team in the city of Bo.” Photograph: Todd Antony

Artist Recreates Her Favorite Spooky Characters Using Paper Art

The Book of Life

According to Kristy Edgar: “I have been making paper art for some time now and October is always my favorite month because I make teeny tiny paper homages to some of my favorite horror or Halloween-related movies.

This year, I decided to only make the ladies – scream queens, final girls, and ladies of the night. I’m really proud of how they turned out!”

Artist Sorted Famous Characters By Species And It Looks Like They Are Taking A Big Family Photo

According to Linda Bouderbala: “Here comes the second part of my series, in which I classify all these characters with their fellow creatures of the same species as if we were doing a big family photo.

Of course, I couldn’t do this series without doing the dogs and cats! I expected them to be numerous… But not that many! So many, that I even had to arrange them by color.

There are at least 170 cats and 230 dogs, and of course, some are still missing, but I think the most important ones are there. Between the research of characters, the setting up, and the illustration itself, it took me about 50 hours to draw the cat team and 70 hours for the dogs.

Let me introduce you to my hippo, fox, wolf, tiger, cat, and dog teams! Also, you can find my previous post featuring more pop-culture characters by clicking here!”

Finally, The 2022 Cats On Catnip Calendar Is Here!

Forget dignified and aloof: These cats are goofy, spaced-out, and probably suffering from the munchies. There’s Tim, a Persian with eyes like orange saucers. Poseidon, a tiger who’s decided to bed down in his stash. And Haroun, who seems to have lost track of which way’s up. Each adorable full-color photograph is expressive and richly detailed.
