Rise Art Prize Judge Nicole Gordon says:

"Gustavo’s collages drew me in as I found them to have great depth, wonderfully detailed subject matter and emotional fervour. I liked his use of mixed media and colour. I have seen artists create similar works, yet Gustavo took it to another level. His work is very technical, yet exudes emotion. I found him to be a stand out artist. "
