Samuel Wade Wins Award
Isn't it refreshing when a talented young artist wins an award? We're so cynical about awards in the UK, because our allegedly most prestigious awards keep being won by untalented twerps. This beautifully atmospheric oil painting won Australian artist Samuel Wade the 8th Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship. Samuel receives $25,000 and a three month residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, administered by the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Good on yer, cobber.
