“I know how difficult it can be to make a career in the art world – it’s a highly competitive industry, with constant cuts to arts funding,” says Turk. “The Rise Art Prize is a much needed platform for raising the profile of artists and art within the media.”
“What we’re really looking for are artists with an ability to convey in whatever medium, their ideas to a maximum impact,” he continues. “This is a great opportunity for any emerging or mid-career artist and I’m pleased to support the project and be part of the jury panel.”
