BIO OF 1st Place WINNER ANTHONY UGBO: Nigerian Student, ML Enthusiast and Self-Taught Pencil Artist. About his 1st Place work: “I started working on this piece late January and finished early July of 2019. I faced a lot of disappointments and challenges even got my heart broken. This work was my way of coping. I have no expectations to pass through here again.”   SEE MORE OF UGBO’S WORK HERE: https://www.instagram.com/anthonyugbo/?hl=en
