CANSON® PRIZE FOR ART AND PAPER

CANSON® PRIZE FOR ART AND PAPER

The work of the five finalists of the 2014 Canson® prize is showcased at Art Paris Art Fair. The prestigious jury for this prize is presided by YAN PEI MING, a French artist of Chinese descent. The prize is awarded in recognition an artist whose work demonstrates a special, intimate relationship with paper. In 2010 Fabien Merelle was rewarded for his precise autobiographical work while in 2011 the jury was swayed by the irony in Ronald Cornelissen’s creations. Virginia Chihota, the winner of the 2013 prize, saw her drawings exhibited at Madrid’s ARCO fair. The jury will meet again in Spain this year to choose the 2014 winner of the Canson® Prize. The work of the five finalists can be found on: www.fondscanson.com.
