The Annual Art Show Winning Artists

By Ann Grenier

It was a fantastic moment celebrated by artists from all around the world. During an Advertising Industry Opening Reception hosted by HAVAS New York, MvVO ART announced that Chanell Angeli took top honors in AD ART SHOW 2022. 

The MvVO ART jury of collectors awarded Chanell Angeli a Specialty Clio in Contemporary Art. A mixed-media artist of Caribbean descent, her work draws on her heritage and interest in the relationship between poetry and visual art to create immersive experiences, exploring themes of the divine feminine and the African Diaspora. Her work is rich in emotional content and intelligence. 

In addition, Parme Marin and Layla Nami were also named 2022 show winners. Parme Marin creates works of art with leather, hair, and wood, exploring “La Peau” (the skin). Layla Nami’s bold imagery draws inspiration from Persian folktales, medieval tapestries, and illuminated manuscripts.

The participating artists have backgrounds in advertising/design or related fields. They are following in the footsteps of famous artists like Andy Warhol, Rene Magritte, and Keith Haring. Historically some artists have leaped, but the barriers persist. MvVO ART/AD ART SHOW throws the doors open for these talented artists with direct connections to the Art World in a celebration of artistic discovery available to all art lovers. It bridges the gap between the Art World and Advertising. “The talent represented in the 2022 selection of 120 artists is extraordinary.

When people comment on the diversity of our artists, I can only say that this is organic and reflects the creative people with roots in advertising and commercial design,” stated Maria van Vlodrop, CEO and Founder of MvVO ART, Creator of AD ART SHOW.

In keeping with the historical connections between Art and Advertising, MvVO ART/AD ART SHOW includes influential figures in contemporary Art and Advertising on the initial Selection Committee and Jury of Collectors. Laura Skoler, Board of Directors, New Museum, NYC, and the Daniel and Florence Guerlain Drawing Foundation, Paris, chairs both the Selection Committee and the Jury. Eric Shiner, a noted curator and formerly the Director of the Andy Warhol Museum, serves on the selection committee. Demonstrating their support and enthusiasm for the artists in advertising, Pum Lefebure, co-founder, and Chief Creative Officer, Design Army, and Nils Leonard, Creative Founder, Uncommon Creative Studio, also serve on the selection committee.

Artworks by MvVO ART/AD ART SHOW 2022 artists can be obtained through the MvVO ART gallery page on Artsy—the premiere site for Art collectors online at The work is both exquisite and makes for unique pieces to showcase in any collection worldwide.
