Warrington & Vale Royal College celebrates Warrington’s most promising young artists in annual competition
Cardinal Newman Catholic High School pupil Carys Backhouse-Worrall was this year’s top Creative Artist, having painted a stunning abstract portrait on canvas, mixing techniques of painting and collage to create a stand-out piece. The judges felt immediately drawn to Carys’ use of bright colours and varied textures to bring the canvas to life.
Tom Welsby, a year 11 pupil at Hope Academy in Newton-Le-Willows, was chosen as this year’s winner of the Digital Artist category, having submitted a striking digital drawing inspired by the 1991 horror movie American Psycho. The judges were blown away by Tom’s work, commending him on his technical proficiency and his instinctive use of depth and colour.
