Central Saint Martins alumni Emma Löfström and Matthew Krishanu have made the longlist for the Griffin Art Prize 2014.
Emma Löfström studied BA Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins and is nominated for her collaboration with Irene Fuga. Together, the pair investigate the world and contemporary culture in relation to the Internet and social media.
MA Fine Art alumnus Matthew Krishanu often draws on his own childhood in Bangladesh in his work. He uses his memories and photographs for inspiration, but shies away from straight autobiography in favour of more open narratives.
Matthew and Emma are two of 20 artists in the running for this year’s Griffin Art Prize. The winner will get a six-month studio residency, a supply of art materials and a solo exhibition at Griffin Gallery.
