SPONSORED: Fresh Blood Hunt art contest winner named
The online Art Competition ‘Fresh Blood Hunt’ was an opportunity for budding creative talent to design an art piece inspired by the release of the movie Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (out in cinemas now) for the chance to win a 17”Mac Book Pro and have their design painted by visionary street artist, Jim Rockwell (Endoftheline), as a mural on Great Eastern Street, East London.
The competition began on Friday 18th May and budding artists had until the 30th May to enter. After the competition closed, people had from 1st – 9th June to visit the site and vote for their favourite piece of art from 12 shortlisted entries.
The winning artwork was created by seventeen year old Emily Jane Neal from North Devon.
Emily said, “My inspiration for my piece was mainly about how Abraham Lincoln was the President of the USA. That is why I included the American flag and a well-known picture of him with his iconic hat on – so that anyone who saw my design would know that the film is about him.”
