The Prize

Take home this Doggy John "Follow Your Dreams" artwork by Julien Marinetti.

Doggy John is a 55cm-tall unique bronze artwork created especially for this occasion by Julien Marinetti.

For more than 30 years, French artist Julien Marinetti has been expanding the borders of painting and sculpture. Marinetti’s main intention is to push viewers out of their comfort zone by questioning the work, its relationship with the canvas and the viewers’ own relationship with the artwork. He uses acrylics, bronze and engravings to create deconstructed pieces of art that could represent strange reflections of the artist’s ego - or that of the viewer.

The artist’s favourite subject is the animal kingdom and he has exhibited his fantastic bestiary all around the world. From Paris to New York, London, Singapore, Courchevel, Saint-Tropez, Cannes and Marrakesh, his pandas, penguins and bulldogs are found in mythical places to open a dialogue with the viewers.

Doggy John has become the artist’s iconic sculpture. The calm figure of this sitting French bulldog contrasts with the sparkling pinks and blues the artist loves to paint with. His name, “Follow Your Dreams”, is both a maxim and an invitation. Since most of our children dream of having a dog, today it can be theirs.
