The Nahualli Creative Marathon drawing contest, held in the midst of a pandemic, at the end of April this year, became the starting point for many artists who were fans of drawing, as well as a new showcase for emerging and professional artists.
Also, with great talents and outstanding work, the winners and honorable mentions were also chosen for giving us a look at the depths of their art and for their dedication in creating fifteen works throughout the Creative Marathon.
Antony Milla Aguilera (ComaIcaIco, Tabasco, 2000), is a visual artist and pianist.
But also, he is our winner of the Nahualli Creative Marathon 2020 in the “Emerging” category.
In the first place, and as part of his training from an early age, Milla studied drawing under the direction of the teacher Adrián Milla Meneses.
With a refined and dramatic style in his strokes, Antony has taken multiple workshops on engraving, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, and action art, with outstanding teachers from the country.
Currently, he has multiple group and individual exhibitions in different galleries, museums, private companies, and different important venues in the country.
Antony is a student of Visual Arts at the Higher School of Arts in Yucatán and is also a member of the sculpture workshop under the tutelage of Austrian teacher Gerda Gruber.
Most of his works can be found in Tabasco and Veracruz.
“After a month or two of confinement, the truth is that the Creative Marathon helped me a lot to clear a lot, doing those drawing exercises. I really like working with series and it made me very interesting because it was a series of 15 drawings ”.
Also, at the beginning of his entry to art school, it occurred to Antony that he did not want to remain solely in painting, and decided to explore other areas such as photography.
While he was finding his way in art, he found a very special place in sculpture.
At the same time, he has managed to develop as an artist in more than one of its aspects.
To contemplate these fifteen works by Antony Milla is to be transported to Imperial Russia, and almost to be moved by the compositions of Tchaikovsky resounding in one’s memory.
