  1. Hello Ryan,

    I am just now getting to know Wise Elephant. Unfortunately, it seems, being an Artist/Photographer, I have missed quite a few competitions I could’ve entered!
    I come from Rio de Janeiro, where I studied two years of Architecture before moving to the US. Been here for over twenty years now. I studied photography at the Corcoran Museum of Art in Washington, DC, at UCLA, while living in CA for eight years. Having studied the ‘old’ style of photography, I decided to take a chance on the digital world, love the immediacy of it! And a few years back took a couple of courses in digital photography/photoshop/printing at NYU. So far, things are going well. I won the first prize for C-SPAN’s 25th anniversary, which became their logo. Had a piece at MoMA, here in NYC for a year and a half, at the Executive Offices. It is now at the Museum of Modern Art in San Diego. A copy of it is in Hong Kong, in an office building, overlooking Victoria Bay. Have had quite a few exhibits, from Los Angeles, to Washington, DC, to Rio de Janeiro and New York. I do hope I don’t sound like I am bragging, because I am aware of how long the road is before one becomes a well known living artist! And one more thing, Sotheby’s called me an Impressionist of the 21st Century. Reason why there are three pages devoted to it on my site. Which, if and when you have a few minutes, i’d be extremely grateful if you look at it and write your first impressions. It would mean a whole lot to me.
    Thank you, Ryan!


  2. Hi Ryan,

    I wrote a long, maybe too long of a comment … while trying to submit it, it says ‘awaiting for moderation’ … not sure wether or not you might get it.
    I sincerely hope you will,
