  • Griffin Art Prize winner explores migration through intermixability

    Every year, Liquitex supports Griffin Art Prize, celebrating emerging talent. Designed to have meaningful impact on the career of one emerging artist, it is an annual residency and exhibition award for UK-based artists in painting and drawing. The winner is given the time, space and materials to develop work for a solo show at Griffin Gallery.

    Griffin Art Prize winner Chudamani Clowes is the accolade’s most intermixable winner yet. Using media from Spray Paint to Ink on unexpected surfaces like survival blankets and banana paper, she encompasses ceramic, print, painting, performance and sculpture into her work. A whirlwind of vitality, Clowes is fundamentally interested in human stories, particularly those of displacement and cultural differences.

    During her residency in a studio right next door to the Liquitex Labs, Clowes spent time investigating the local area, White City. Inspired by the area’s Franco-British Exhibition of 1908 as well as the ethnographic archive at the British Museum, Clowes uses a wide variety of media to represent cultural and human displacement.

    With her first solo show just around the corner, the artist will invite viewers to interact with her work and join in performances, which will be set against a backdrop of intermixable paintings, as well as sculptures and installations.

    White City runs from 28th August to 2nd October 2015 at Griffin Gallery, London, W11 4AJ.
