The Griffin Art Prize 2014 UK is an exciting opportunity for emerging artists in painting and drawing. Supported by the world’s leading fine art brands, Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté à Paris, the prize offers one outstanding candidate a six month residency in the Studio Building, 21, Evesham street, London W11 4AJ. A large, well-lit studio, materials and a small financial allowance are provided for the winning artist to develop new work for a one-person show in the Griffin Gallery, London W11.

20 artists selected for the long list of the Griffin Art Prize 2014 UK will have their work showcased on this website. An exhibition of 10 short-listed artists will be held at the Griffin Gallery. The winner of Griffin Art Prize 2014 UK will be selected by the judges from the shortlist exhibition and announced at the private view in the Griffin Gallery on 18th November 2014.

The judges will be looking for innovation in painting and drawing and for the applicants’ potential to benefit from the residency.

The three stages of the Griffin Art Prize 2014 UK are incremental platforms for professional exposure. To make the long list is a considerable achievement; the short-list exhibition is a popular and well attended event that attracts collectors, critics, art world professionals and the general public. The winning artist’s solo exhibition is a high-profile showcase accompanied by a catalogue.
