City:

Derwent ®, internationally renowned artists’ materials brand, are proud to present the Derwent Art Prize 2018, on display at London’s prestigious Mall Galleries from 18 - 23 September 2018, showcasing the very best 2D & 3D artworks created in pencil, coloured pencil, pastel, graphite and charcoal. Following an international open call, 1278 artists from 64 different countries submitted a total of 3,299 artworks, the highest number of entries in the history of the Prize. Submissions were judged by an expert panel comprising Gill Saunders, Senior Curator, V&A; Chris Sharratt, Art Critic; and Clare Woods, Artist. Together, the judges selected 67 artworks which celebrate drawing in all its diversity.

The shortlisted works offer an overview of international contemporary drawing approaches, from Seoul based artist Sunghun Jung’s surreal geometric drawing Fountain, to the panoramic depiction of Lagoa de Fogo drawn onto a saxophone reed by Portuguese artist Maura Barreto. French artist France Bizot’s intricate hand drawn books illustrate one way in which drawing can be realised in three dimensions, whilst Lithuanian artist Laura Guoke’s large scale portrait There you are, the Journey has almost Begun highlights the facility of graphite, charcoal and coloured pencils to create hyperreal imagery with a digitised aesthetic.

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 Derwent Pencil Museum in Keswick, Cumbria (until January 2018).
