Vinh added: "At Surtex, we want to take Australian artists to the next level. Putting them on an international stage gives the artists an opportunity to shine on a big scale.

"At ArtSHINE, our mission is to promote and help as many artists to build a sustainable art practice, create a residual income and pursue their lives with passion and true purpose."
