Dr Chris Blatchley, Patron of the Young Masters Art Prize and Young Masters Emerging Woman Artist Prize

Dr Chris Blatchley is a dedicated patron of the Arts and is generously providing a Winner’s Prize of £2,000 for the Fourth Edition of the Young Masters Art Prize, and a Winner’s Prize of £1,000 and a Highly Commended Prize of £250 for the inaugural Young Masters Emerging Woman Art Prize.

Chris has been collecting art for 30 years. He first met Cynthia Corbett, later to be Founder & Director of the Young Masters Art Prize, 15 years ago and quickly acknowledged the potential of Cynthia’s early curatorial projects. Chris’s specialist clinic in The City of London was opened for a series of innovative pop-up exhibitions, marking the origins of their most recent collaboration. Chris’s support has been particularly influential and has led to the development of an additional Prize strand, newly inaugurated this year.  After discussing the potential of his sponsorship, Chris and Cynthia came to recognise their shared desire to support emerging women artists. A new strand of the prize, the Young Masters Emerging Woman Art Prize, was conceived with the intention to profile and reward the work of a female artist at the early stages of her career.

Dr Chris Blatchley is Director of The Glass House Opticians, an independent Opticians operating in The City of London since 1984 whose aim is to provide a highly professional service throughout all aspects of eye care. Dr Blatchley started Capital Aesthetics in 2008, specialising in aesthetic medicine. Dr Blatchley is also Medical Director of The London Migraine Clinic where he researches improved ways of using Botox to treat those badly affected by their illness.
