“Prismatic Pop”/Mixed Media (Pastel, Colored Pencil, Watercolor, Marker, & Glitter)


This self-portrait by Irvi Stefo, an 11th grader at Bancroft School in Worcester, Massachusetts, won him the Gold Medal in last month’s national l Scholastic Art & Writing Awards.  Stefo describes the illustration as demonstrating “the dominant role of social media” today. “This particular piece creates a link between the thirst for attention and a reflection of individuality,: he writes. “Diving into a prismatic wonderland of pop culture and surrealism is like finding serenity in a madhouse.”
