1. Why did you decide to support the Young Masters Art Prize?

Cynthia Corbett is a dear friend and I love supporting initiatives lead by women in our industry. The Young Masters Art Prize also aims to support artists, which is my core passion so it was an easy decision!

2. What do you get from the experience of judging the Prize?

It’s always so interesting to see how other people judge and select artists so I am looking forward to being challenged!

3. What are you most looking forward to this year?

So many things! We have recently opened a second office for our company in Paris and it is a joy to see how well Paris is doing for us. Supported by the Mayor of Paris, our artist Saype has recently covered the 14,000 square meters of the Champ de Mars in Paris with his biodegradable paint. I can’t wait!!!

4. What advice would you give to artists who have applied to this year’s prize?

I hope you've cut the fluff out and written an artistic statement that is meaningful. I wish you luck and look forward to be inspired by your works!
