An exciting, high-profile competition initiated in 2009, Young Masters features emerging and newly established artists worldwide, who are inspired by the work of the Old Masters.
Through painting, photography, sculpture and installation, each artist references an element of the established art historical canon, whilst establishing an undeniably contemporary spin on highly revered paintings. The artists offer images that are familiar icons, often instantly recognisable, yet re-interpreted, distorted and somewhat uncanny. By placing these contemporary works firmly in contrast to the existing art-historical canon, the Young Masters Art Prize is both unique and ground-breaking.
