An exhibition of the shorlisted artists from this year's  ‘NOW Introducing’ Open Call  + Art Prize

Since inception, STUDIO WEST has been committed to platforming early career artists and helping them to build successful professional careers. In 2022, we established the ‘NOW Introducing’ Open Call + Art Prize in line with this core principle. 
Inviting applications from any artist currently studying on, or recently graduated from, a London-based BA, MA or alternative study programme, the ‘NOW Introducing’ Open Call + Art Prize intends to support art students and new graduates as they transition between arts education and the art industry, while spotlighting some of the next generations’ most exciting talents. For this year’s edition, we received over 500 applications, from which we have shortlisted 20 artists whose work will feature in our ‘NOW Introducing’ exhibition. 
The ‘NOW Introducing’ 2023 award-winning artists were selected with the help of our esteemed selection panel, including Founder of the All About Art Podcast, Alexandra Steinacker-Clark; Artist and previous ‘NOW Introducing’ prize-winner, Andras Nagy-Sandor; Curator and Arts Journalist, Bella Bonner-Evans; Collector and Founder of The Social Art Agency, Cassandra Bowes; Artist and Educator, Jerome Ince and STUDIO WEST Founder and Director, Caroline Boseley. The winner and two runners-up will each receive a cash prize and a year of one-on-one mentoring with the STUDIO WEST gallery team.
The 'NOW Introducing' Winner of 2023 is Callum Harvey, with runners-up Yuma Radne and Freya Fang Wang. The Sculpture Award was awarded to Valentino Vannini.
The 'NOW Introducing' 2023 shortlisted artists are: Anastazie Anderson, Rachel Bungey, Ji Won Cha, Hyunjun Cho, Candice Dehnavi, Elizabeth Dimitroff, Kasia Garapich, Henry Gibbs, Lily Hargreaves, Callum Harvey, Xingxin Hu, Hilda Kortei, Yuma Radne, Emma Sheehy, Katherine Qiyu Su, Valentino Vannini, Jake Walker, Freya Fang Wang, Jack Whitelock and Minjing Yang.
