YOUNG MASTERS ART PRIZE 2017

The Young Masters Art Prize was established in 2009 by gallerist Cynthia Corbett, and it celebrates contemporary artists who pay homage to the skill and traditions of the past. Eighteen artists from across the globe are competing for this much-coveted international award, and an exhibition of their works will take place at Gallery 8 in St James, London, from 19th until 24th June. Amongst the artists shortlisted for the Young Masters Art Prize is Ghanaian-British multimedia artist Amartey Golding, whose “Chainmail” film sheds light on the cultural behaviours towards race, gender and sexuality, as it channels the darkness of El Greco and Goya.
