In 2008 I came up with the concept for the Young Masters Art Prize. Having felt for a long time that there was a strong need for the art historical canon to be reflected in the voice of contemporary art and artists, it was this that inspired me to launch the first edition of the Young Masters Art Prize a year later, in 2009. I felt that an art prize was the best way to introduce this concept as it would bring together artists working across different genres who were united through the same theme. It’s a celebration of all aspects of art history through the eyes of international contemporary artists.
