All of us at team Grazia were totally blown away by the incredible talent showcased at the Red Bull Doodle Art Competition in Pakistan. This competition by Red Bull gave young artists across the nation a platform to unleash their creativity and connect with other like-minded individuals.
Red Bull knows that the art world is constantly evolving, and artists all over the world are leading the way through innovation by incorporating NFTs and Red Bull wants the same for Pakistani artists. By embracing new technologies and thinking outside the box, Pakistani artists can explore new creative avenues and gain global exposure, and do wonders.
Pakistan’s finest doodlers gathered on Sunday, March 12, 2023, at the Islamabad Arts Gallery at F-9 Park in Islamabad to compete in the Red Bull Doodle Art competition, where only 20 out of 3000 entries made it to the national finals. These top Red Bull Doodle Art finalists hailed from diverse backgrounds and age groups, each bringing their distinctive doodling styles influenced by their life experiences, culture, and inspirations.
After a day of mind-blowing creativity and doodling techniques, the judges scrutinized each entry based on three core elements: imaginative originality, artistic mastery, and the ability of the doodle to convey a zest for living. Umer Nadeem emerged as the winner, with Iqra Qureshi and Mominah Arif as the runners-up. Umer Nadeem, the Red Bull Doodle Art Pakistan 2023 winner, is set to embark on an artistic adventure of a lifetime! He’ll spend four weeks teaming up with a top-notch artist to create a groundbreaking doodle NFT. In May, he will be representing Pakistan and compete against 60+ national champions at the Red Bull Doodle Art World Final in Amsterdam. It’ll be a three-day extravaganza of physical and digital art, with workshops, creative sessions, and plenty of opportunities to showcase his skills. Get ready to witness a dazzling fusion of art and technology!
The jury panel, which included industry experts Mr. Imran Ali Dina and Ms. Amna Shah, was impressed with the participants’ unique doodling styles influenced by their life experiences, culture, and inspirations.
