#Modern Masters

This year’s Senior School Art Exhibition was inspired by students reimagining the work of both Old Masters and modern artists.  Students studied the style and technique of these artists in their Art classes before adapting and reinterpreting them in their own pictures, using different media and colour palettes.

The exhibition was opened at Park Street Mews on Saturday 1st October by the Chief Guests, mountaineers Jayanthi Kuru-Utumpala and Johann Peiris, who also had the tough job of judging the parallel Inter House Art competition.  Overwhelmed by the quality, originality and variety of work on display, they said choosing the winners was ‘harder than climbing Everest’.  Onalie Yainne won the award for best individual work in the Middle School and Mohamed Ismail for the Senior School.

Also on display was Young Eun Shin’s IGCSE Art examination from last year that earned her an incredible 100% and the World Prize, a feat matched by Shiarah Didi in this year’s exam.
