Chromy Award

Chromy Award



Contrary to all other existing awards, the Chromy Award has been created based on the work and philosophy of an artist, the painter and sculptor Anna Chromy. A small reproduction of her central masterwork “The Cloak of Conscience” serves as Trophy for the Laureates.

It is the first time that an artist has deliberately devoted all her force and enthusiasm to create paintings and sculptures which appeal to our conscience and spur us to participate in the change to a better world

Our conscience makes us see the beauty in life and feel the mysterious. It instills love into our hearts, and it makes us strive for the sublimity and the harmonious order, which reveal themselves both in nature and in the world of thought.

According to Aristotle, beauty as a metaphysical ideal reveals itself to man through harmony, which is the source of felicity. An opinion shared by Confucius. Based on these axioms, Anna Chromy has devoted her artistic life to create works which instill harmony into our hearts and raise our conscience for the beauty and the vulnerability of the Creation.

With her Cloak of Conscience she has created a space of meditation and the global symbol for the most pressing issues facing humanity’s sustainable development, in social, economic, and environmental areas

In her different paintings and sculptures she addresses specific questions of the environment, such as the vanishing biodiversity, the depletion of natural resources, the protection of rainforests and the seas, without neglecting the injustices in the supply of food, water, and medicines among the world’s citizens
