We would like to congratulate Stephen Doyle on winning the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize 2018. In 2017 Stephen received the ‘Student of the Year’ Award from CIT Crawford College of Art & Design and was awarded the Backwater Studios Graduate Residency Award.
“The winning artist, Stephen Doyle, is an Irish artist based in Cork, whose submission ‘Man and Subject’ is a discussion on how queer men are redefining male culture. The piece directly asks the viewer to consider which figure they deem to be ‘the man’. Stephen will receive £3,000 and an exhibition in the Emerging Artists Gallery in Ashurst’s London office between July and September.”
