The Signature Art Prize was established by gallery Directors Isobel Beauchamp and Elinor Olisa in 2007 to celebrate and identify emerging artists’ ‘Signature Style’. They define an artist’s ‘signature style’ as being “that which makes an artist unique; a combination of process and method, contributed to by the artist’s own personality which results in a piece that is unique and specific to them.” With their intuitive knowledge of the contemporary art market, they endeavour to fully capture and develop each individual artist’s ‘brand’.
The prize is open to all artists currently studying, and those who have graduated from an arts-based degree within the last 3 years. The competition is divided into the following categories:
PAINTING I SCULPTURE I PHOTOGRAPHY & FILM I DRAWING & PRINTMAKING | DESIGNER-MAKER
We are very pleased to announce that Alumni Martha Oatway has been shortlisted in the Drawing and Printmaking category and will be travelling to London for the prize ceremony and exhibition of works.
