MCV is proud to present the Grand Prize winner of the Laird’s Men on Men Art Competition each year as our cover. This year we are particularly happy with Andrew Li’s work ‘Guys’.

Li’s work is a combination of marker, watercolour and digital mediums and we feel his contemporary take on gay male culture is a representation of gay men that we don’t often see. Li said of his work:

“The overall idea was just a bunch of guys hanging out, but also I wanted to capture a greater sense of diversity in the drawing.”

Li is a graphic designer and illustrator by trade, but this is only his second foray in art competitions and was shocked when he got the call he had won.

“I think I will definitely enter more competitions now,” he said.

Li also won a $500 Deans Art voucher.
