For the 3rd consecutive year Hine is proud to sponsor a Painting Prize at the Royal College of Art Graduate Exhibition, arguably the most influential university of art and design.
Previous winners include James Viscardi and Mathis Gasser, both of whom have gone on to launch extremely exciting careers in the arts. This year, the work was as distinguished and thought-provoking as we have come to expect, the outcome of a two year programme and a lot of hard work.
This year we were delighted to be joined by Per Even Allaire, Brand Ambassador & Sales Manager at Hine, for the selection process. Per Even is an avid follower of the arts and therefore relished the opportunity to visit the exhibition and consider which work deserved the title of the Hine Painting Prize 2013.
We are delighted to announce that the winner of the 2013 prize is Lian Zhang and her work ‘Passage’, oil on canvas, which is soon to become a wonderful addition to Hine’s art collection.
The graduates enjoyed a well-deserved party at the opening of the exhibition with drinks provided by Hine and Fever-Tree.
