We’re pleased to announce, alongside Art Action for Kids, the launch of a major artwork competition for young people to exhibit alongside professional artists at The Station.
Bristol graffiti artist Nick Walker and illustrator Rose Sanderson, helped declare the competition open for entries by donating the first artworks that are being put forward for auction at the Station launch event.
The Station Artwork Competition offers young people the chance to see their artwork hung alongside a collection of more than 30 works by professional artists. The entire collection will then be auctioned off on Thursday 18 October as part of the corporate launch celebrations at The Station. All funds will be donated to future creative projects at the youth hub.
To enter, young people should take a digital shot of their artwork and upload it to the ‘Art Auction & Competition’ event on The Station’s Facebook page. Artwork must be 2D but can be in any medium including painting, graffiti, digital, illustration, textile, print and photography.
Participating artists include graffiti and street artists Nick Walker, D*Face and Shepard Fairey, whose high profile collections have been displayed in the New York Museum of Modern Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Local artists Tom Bagshaw and Rose Sanderson and internationally renowned artists Will Barras and Natalie Shau have also joined the line-up. Further artists will be announced soon.
The competition will be split into two age groups, 11-14yrs and 15-19yrs. The final three of both age groups will be decided on Facebook, but the overall winners will be judged by a special guest art panel.
