In collaboration with Saatchi Gallery and UK New Artists, Robert Walters Group’s UK New Artist of the Year Award returns this summer for the fourth time.
Having received 1,400+ entries last year, this year’s call for entries opens on Thursday, 29 June 2023, under the brief: ‘The Journey of Self-Actualization: Exploring the Illusion of Greener Grass and the Pursuit of the Dream’ – and the judges expect it to draw a large number of entries.
This exhibition explores aspirations and dreams, playing into the idea that everyone is seeking the career path that fulfils us and brings us self-actualization. However, the journey may not always be easy.
Among the judges will be Robert Walters – an art enthusiast, collector, and founder of Robert Walters Group; Paul Foster – Director of Saatchi Gallery; Michelle Bowen – Director of UK New Artists; Alex Zawadzki – Director of The Second Act Gallery; Harold Offeh – Artist & Educator; Inger Margrethe Stoveland – Director of Fluks – Centre for Young Art at the University of Agder, Norway; Habib Hajallie – Artist and winner of the Robert Walters Group UK New Artist Award.
