Aleah Chapin Wins
Congratulations to Aleah Chapin for winning the prestigious BP Portrait Award 2012 worth £25,000 plus a commission worth £4,000. I thought Aleah's painting of Auntie was outstanding when I posted the shortlist (CLICK). Her friends have been rooting for her in comments on that post. The BBC is very shy about showing bare white breasts (CLICK), but it doesn't mind showing bouncy black ones! Racist BBC! The award exhibition of the best 55 of the 2,187 entries opens on 21 June, admission free.
