How are MK's young artists pushing the boundaries of the medium of paint?

MK Young Painter presents the shortlisted entries from a city-wide competition designed to uncover new possibilities for painting. From canvas to 3D and Digital painting, young artists aged 4-19+ were invited to explore painting's ability to keep finding new directions whether through media, materials, tools, technique, style, concept or subject matter.

You can find our exhibition guide here.

The exhibition will conclude with the announcement of the MK Young Painter competition winners.
