We are delighted to announce the winner of the Art Academy BA Prize 2020, in association with Hitachi Capital UK. Congratulations to Chikaora Obiora who wins a full scholarship for tuition fees on our BA (Hons) Fine Art course starting September 2020 for the duration of the programme.
Our inaugural prize was judged by, Rob Pepper (Principal, Art Academy London), Henry Little (Executive Director, The Fine Art Group), Kate Gordon (Founder, London Art Studies), Sid Motion (Founder, Sid Motion Gallery) and Tai Shan Schierenberg (artist).
Henry Little said of the judges decision:
We were immediately impressed by Chikaora’s technical fluency and her clear potential for the future.
Chikaora was announced as the winner at our Fundraising Auction & Dinner at Christie’s on Thursday 20th February.
At Art Academy London, we believe everyone should have access to high-quality art education. That’s why we offer art courses to suit all levels of skill and commitment, and provide bursaries to help students with tuition fees for our BA, Foundation Degree and Fine Art Foundation.
Shortlisted entrants received an Art Academy London sketchbook and drawing pack, and will have their work shown in our online gallery.
Don’t forget that you can still apply for our BA (Hons) Fine Art starting September 2020.
