Stephen Doyle wins Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize 2018

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.”
