A level Art & Design student Tommy Malone has had his artwork seen by thousands of people at the opening of the prestigious Tate Modern Switch House.
Young artists aged between 15-25 were invited to submit their original artwork related to the theme of ‘What is the future of Art’.
There were over 700 submissions internationally from artists, which were eventually short-listed to 225 and seen by thousands at the opening exhibition.
The competition was wide ranging and submissions included graphic design, photography, video, animation, moving image, documented performance, illustration, paintings, print, pattern, sculptures and installation.
Tommy said, “The artworks I submitted encompassed the final outcomes of my A level Art exam, and surrounded the themes of ‘Sub-Aqua’ with ‘Flow-Structure’. Exploring these themes in a new medium of digital design and 3D polygon modelling gave me a glimpse into what could possibly be the future of art and design.”
“I am honoured to have been selected to display my artwork at the opening of the new Tate Modern.”
After leaving Hills Road Tommy will be going to study Computer Digital Arts at Bournemouth University.
