Frontier, a global community and source of inspiration for young creatives, art and design students, recently hosted the Portraiture Photography Challenge and asked aspiring photographers and digital artists to photograph a subject with which the artists connected; they were then tasked with creating a portrait capturing the personality and essence of that individual.
The winning portrait, The Painted Man, was done by Auckland-based Media Design School 3D Animation student Navjin “Navve” Khosravi.
As the winner of the Frontier Portraiture Photography Challenge, Navve has received a full scholarship to take a variety of summer courses at NewSchool of Architecture & Design this July.
NewSchool’s two-week Summer Courses give creative students the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals. As part of the program, students visit museums, companies, production sites and design studios, all of which expose them to the creative and cultural environment in San Diego.
The trip to San Diego will be Navve’s first time in the U.S.
“I am super excited to be going to the U.S,” said Nawe. “I’d never even considered visiting the U.S. before and now I’m actually going there! I’m definitely going to take the 3D sculpting course and I may take the architecture course as something a little different to what I’ve been studying. There are so many options to choose from, I’m not too sure yet.”
