Fifth prize: Diana Barta
Specialising in visual storytelling, Diana Barta can be found practicing her craft at University of the Arts London, as a BA Illustration and Visual Media student. Over halfway into her third year, she has found herself dabbling in both digital and traditional media to bring her visions to life, with her sights set on working in animation and games design when she graduates in 2021.
Her Shutterstock submission was a personal project that touches on the power of distractions. Using stock imagery of water ripples and marbling to indicate an ebb and flow, she conjures the distractions that can prevent us all from completing tasks or resolving issues.
Diana’s final pieces invite us to be mindful of the chaos of life, and have been commended by Florence Lau for their exploration of “fluid patterns and high-contrast colours” in an attempt to convey rapid movement.
