Dentons Law Firm and curator Niamh White are delighted to announce the shortlist for the second Dentons Art Prize.

The Dentons Art Prize is a biannual award of £5,000 given to one artist by an independent panel of judges. Previous judges have included gallerist Simon Lee, artist Susan Hiller and curator Ziba Ardalan. Dentons also host a Staff Prize voted for by its employees.

The selection of London based artists hail from all over the world including Pakistan, China, Kenya, Hong Kong, South Africa, USA and the UK, and have been selected for exceptional performance in their early careers.

A diverse range of artworks by each artist are on display in Dentons’ top floor meeting rooms amidst views of the London cityscape.

From Phoebe Boswell’s drawings exploring states of diasporic consciousness to Tamsin Relly’s reflections on the increasingly shifting global climate and Natasha Malik’s miniature paintings featuring intimate inner landscapes that explore female identity, each artist works in a variety of media and tackles a wide array of concerns.

Dentons is committed to supporting promising artists as they progress in their careers and values the vibrant, discerning and responsive insights on both local and global culture they provide.

As part of the initiative, the shortlisted artists are given access to expert pro bono legal advice from Dentons and their artwork is offered for sale.

The winners will be announced later in 2016.

“Following the success of our inaugural Art Prize earlier this year, we are delighted to be kicking off this second award with a shortlist of hugely talented artists. Showcasing and supporting emerging artists working in the UK is one way that we continue to demonstrate our commitment to the community, and we hope the art on display will provide inspiration to our staff and clients.”
