• 2018 Derwent Art Prize winners announced

        • Derwent has announced the prize winners of the Derwent Art Prize 2018 with first Prize (£6,000) going to France Bizot for Madame Bovary, a figurative coloured pencil drawing made inside a found vintage book. 

          Serbian artist, Jovanka Stanojevic is the recipient of the £3,000 Second Prize for Hair 2, a detailed portrait that depicts only the subject’s hair and shoulders. The Third Prize of £1,500 has been awarded to Royal Academy Schools alumnus Anna Gardiner for her tonal charcoal drawing Washday. 

          Paris based artist Emma Bertin Sanabria is the recipient of the Young Artist Award (£750), for an artist under the age of 25. The Prize recognises and celebrates emerging artistic talent such as Sanabria who is an alumnus of L’École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris and New York’s prestigious School of Visual Arts (SVA). Her prizewinning coloured pencil drawing Noé is a delicately rendered portrait in which the male sitter appears immersed in the artist’s process – her drawing picking up the myriad of textures and folds in his clothing, as areas of saturated colour evolve into singular pencil lines.

          The People’s Choice Award of £750 gave the general public an opportunity to vote for their favourite shortlisted artwork via the Derwent Art Prize Facebook page. The Prize was awarded to Hong Kong based artist Kin Choi Lam for his coloured pencil drawing Morning Assembly. Like much of his work, the drawing highlights mysterious elements within everyday situations.

          The Prize-winning drawings, which are amongst 67 shortlisted artworks making up the 2018 Derwent Art Prize exhibition, were selected by an expert panel comprising Gill Saunders, Senior Curator, V&A; Chris Sharratt, Art Critic; and Clare Woods, Artist.

          All shortlisted works will be on display at Mall Galleries, London from 18th – 23rd September 2018. The exhibition will be accompanied by a dynamic events programme, including a one-day drawing workshop with 2016 exhibitor Tim Wright, focused on capturing the human figure in movement. In addition, 2018 exhibitors Ian Robinson, Lesley Doyle and Phillip Hood will give live demonstrations against the backdrop of the exhibition; and Spanish painter Pablo Castaneda Santana will showcase Derwent’s recently launched fade-resistant Lightfast Pencils at the 2018 Prize-giving. Visit www.derwent-artprize.com for full event details.

          Subsequent to the exhibition at Mall Galleries, the Derwent Art Prize 2018 will tour to venues across the UK including Trowbridge Arts (29 September – 10 November 2018) and the Derwent Pencil Museum in Keswick, Cumbria (until January 2018). Derwent Art Prize 2018: 18 – 23 September 2018, Mall Galleries, London SW1.
