Sixth Form and Upper School Art Competition Winners

15th October 22

DLD College London would like to congratulate the Year 11 GCSE Art & Design student Katya G. Katya has won the Upper School Art Competition for the Autumn term. Her still life observational drawings of organic forms have captured a great sense of depth and realism. Katya is a committed art student who clearly has a passion for the creative arts. Her work exudes creativity, and she is a passionate artist. Her recent drawings in pencil and ink have a highly descriptive and meticulously detailed quality.

We would also like to congratulate two Year 11 GCSE Art & Design students, Veila M and Amir A H, who both will be sharing second place in the competition as runners up. Veila and Amir have worked diligently throughout the course and have made great progress within their artistic practice. They have produced a fantastic series of drawings working from still life and have developed their practice within observational drawing.

Arman A has won the Sixth Form Art Competition for the Autumn term. Arman is currently studying the Fashion Management pathway, which trains and inspires future fashion professionals with acute commercial awareness and prepares students for undergraduate study in a range of fashion based courses.

Arman is an avid designer who has fully emersed himself in fashion design. His commitment and dedication to his artistic practice is exemplary and he is a formidable force. His recent works exploring the ‘New Romantics’ movement has captured the essence, style and colour of the 1980’s. Emma Jane Whitton the IFP Fashion design tutor commended Arman on his ‘unflinching determination in his pursuit of an informed and completely idiosyncratic style’.

We eagerly look forward to see Arman’s future design work and how he develops and experiments on the Fashion course. We would also like to congratulate two Sixth Form students Aydaossadat T Z and Jack A who were awarded the prestigious second place in the competition. Aydaossadat and Jack have developed and experimented well with their project work. We have highly commended them for their recent street photography artworks. We look forward to seeing how they develop their artistic practice throughout this academic year.
