St George’s Artists scoop top prizes in Vivi Vejo 2016 Art Competition

Several of our talented artists were awarded the top prizes at the Vivi Vejo ONLUS ceremony held in Olgiata.
16 year old Ruihong Jaing was awarded the overall prize for Art, for her vibrant watercolour of the Colosseum that forms part of her coursework for AS level Art. She is taking this exam a year earlier than normal. Her efforts have been rewarded with two business class return tickets to Paris with Alitalia. Ruihong is no stranger to prizes and awards for her artwork. Last year she took her GCSE Art exam a year early and was awarded ‘Highest in the World’ by Edexcel.
In second place came 18 year old IB Visual Artist Daniele Chen with a diptych entitled ‘Out of My Hands’ exploring body language within his multicultural Chinese/Italian heritage. 
14 year old Maria Cordero di Montezemolo came fourth with her lively lino print work. 

17 year old Carla Iannace was awarded an honourable mention for her beautiful portrait of a young Afghan girl.
