We are delighted to announce that a selection of artists from the Young Masters Art Prize will be shown at the Affordable Art Fair Battersea 2013.
The Young Masters Art Prize is a unique, not-for-profit biennial competition open to international and UK-based artists who combine skill and innovation with awareness of the Old Masters and art of the past. It aims to give global recognition to artists in the early stages of their career.
After an extremely successful prize in 2012, with exhibitions at Sphinx Fine Art in October 2012, and exhibition and prize ceremony at Gallery 27 on Cork Street in November, the 26 shortlisted artists were presented alongside three guest artists: Yinka Shonibare, MBE, Ali Assaf and Lluís Barba.
This selection is a project of the Young Masters Art Prize, curated by Daisy McMullan, (MA Curating, Chelsea College of Art and Design), curator of Young Masters 2012, and featuring artists from Young Masters 2009 – 2012.
Artists exhibited to include winner Lottie Davies, runner-up Georgia Dodson, highly commended artists, Christopher Coppers and Charles Moxon and shortlisted artists, Karina Chechik, Naia del Castillo, Fabiano Parisi, Ethan Pollock and 2009 Finalist Charlotte Bracegirdle and new artists Jessica Illsley and Nicole Etienne.
