Fortunately, three of my pieces have made it on the short list of the Graduate Art Prize 2016.
The following are the three pieces on the list.
Founded in 2013, the Graduate Art Prize was set up with the direct aim of introducing young artists directly to the corporate art market, providing another means of supporting them and helping get their careers off the ground, away from the traditional gallery route.
The award was first set up in 2013 by art consultants ARTIQ(Formerly Works in Print), together with the London office of global law firm Herbert Smith Freehills. ARTIQ created the event together with Herbert Smith Freehills and administers it, whilst Herbert Smith Freehills is the event sponsor and also showcases the finalists in a prestigious private view and exhibition.
The winner receives a £1,000 cash prize and all shortlisted artists will get the opportunity to sign with ARTIQ, an innovative art consultancy with a variety of clients ranging from large international corporates to collectors who have a keen interest in emerging, talented artists.
It is an honour to be given a great opportunity as I finish the MA Fine Art at the Chelsea College of Art. The winner of the prize will be chosen by public vote and announced at an exclusive event on 8th November, so please view and enjoy the work in the gallery or online, and I would appreciate your participation. The exhibition will then be on display until November.
