Shortlisted for the Reach Prize

I made it through to the shortlist for the Reach- New Visual Art Prize but sadly did not win. It would’ve been lovely to exhibit alongside well known names but I am still thrilled to have been shortlisted.

Reach is part of the prestigious Art for Youth London exhibition, run yearly at the Royal College of Art to raise money for UK Youth ( in the last 25 years it has raised over 1 million pounds).

It allows emerging artists to be exhibited alongside well known artist- artists who have been involved in the exhibition include Tracy Emin, Ken Howard, Tom Coates, Mary Fedden, Frank Bowling MBE and many others. Work is also seen by an audience of critics, buyers and other artists. For some artists, such as Iranian painter, Afshin Naghouni, it has been an important springboard in reaching an international career and solo exhibitions. It could be the break you need to reach the next level of your career.

The prize is judged by a steering group including representatives from the Southbank & the V & A as well as the Creative Director of Art for Youth London, Caitlin Mavroleon . The winner is displayed in the exhibition and their work will be for sale.
