When you are a fan of Eurovision make sure to also check the art of Italian artist, Federico Ghin, he makes these really cool and intricate drawings of the Eurovision entrants of a specific year, and needless to say that he also did this for this year. Check out his drawings below.
WHO IS FEDERICO GHIN?
Federico Ghin is an Illustrator and Graphic Designer born in 1992 in Italy.
He achieved his artistic certificate of 5 years in painting and decorative painting in 2012 and then in 2016 he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice.
The subjects of Federico’s art are the main characters of pop culture, but also icons like Andy Warhol. Federico is fascinated by the music of the ’80s, i.e. pop stars with the likes of: Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Freddie Mercury, but also the hot and happening stars of today, like: Lady Gaga, Céline Dion and Conchita Wurst, to mention just two.
Federico has become, and still is a fan, of Austrian singer Conchita Wurst. Conchita won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014 with the song “Rise Like a Phoenix”, and is a returning muse in many of Federico’s drawings. In 2015, Federico was contacted by Conchita’s team to collaborate on a well-received merchandise item for Eurovision 2015: The so called “LOVE/RESPECT” scarf, depicting Federico’s hand-drawing of Conchita. The scarf was produced and made available in shops in Vienna, but also to purchase online for all of the bearded lady’s fans world-wide.
WHAT IS THE MAIN REASON WHY FEDERICO GHIN DRAWS PORTRAITS OF EUROVISION ARTISTS?
Curious as we are, we also asked Federico what the main reason is why he draws portraits of Eurovision artists, and he said the following, we quote:
“I am a big fan of the event, and I follow the Eurovision Song Contest for the past 10 years; from Loreen’s victory, and through my illustrations, I pay tribute to the artists who are part of this event that unites people and cultures through music, like the arts have always done.
I truly believe in the power of music and creativity.”Federico Ghin, artist

The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will take place on May 9th, 11th, and 13th 2023 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. 37 countries will compete for the crown. This year’s Eurovision Song Contest will be a joint venture, since last year’s winner Ukraine cannot organize the contest on home soil because of the ongoing war with Russia.
