Student wins national art competition
Fine art student, Yin Ching Tung, has won first place in Glyndebourne’s national art competition for her piece exploring the theme of vanity.
Yin Ching Tung’s, Struggles of Vanity, impressed the judges with its energetic vitality, raw graphic style and mesmerising undertones of the work of Francis Bacon.
Competing against 15 original artworks for the top spot, Struggles of Vanity will be displayed in the Stalls Gallery at Glyndebourne and will be featured on the cover of 10,000 copies of the Glyndebourne Tour programme.
Launched in 2013, The Glyndebourne Tour art competition was created in response to the success of its sister publication, the Glyndebourne Festival Programme book. The Tour Art competition champions young and emerging artistic talent of a different kind.
Glyndebourne is an opera house in the Sussex countryside founded in 1934. It is committed to developing new talent and reaching new audiences.
