„STRABAG’s cultural commitment remains firmly entrenched, even when traversing global crises and challenging times. We are full of pride and joy to see how the STRABAG Artaward International is helping to advance many young artists’ careers, contributing to the significant process of forging international networks between a generation of emerging artists. I warmly congratulate this year's award winners and look forward to their solo exhibitions at STRABAG Artlounge!“ - Thomas Birtel, CEO STRABAG SE.

The exhibition with the works of the main prize winner and the four recognition award winners can be seen from 18.6.-13.8.2021 in the STRABAG Artlounge. A catalog will be published to accompany the exhibition. From October 2021, all award-winning artists will have a solo exhibition at the STRABAG Artlounge gallery space in Vienna.

„This year’s submissions to the STRABAG Artaward International have demonstrated impressively that painting, as a supposedly outmoded and obsolete medium, maintains its relevance in a digital age and proves to be extremely resilient“ - Roman Grabner, Curator at Universalmuseum Joanneum and jury member.
