Su-Min Do : Drawing Award Winner

Su-Min Do has been selected amongst 44 applications coming from 14 European schools.

A word from the president, Christophe Delavault

“It is always rewarding to compose and to chair the Jury of a new award when it comes to supporting young artists and promote a medium that I have been collecting and defending for years, namely drawing.
For long considered as a preparatory work only, this medium confirms its “Art” in itself today and. The quality of the applications we have received for the Drawing proves it also.
This jury of professionals and enthusiasts has met our expectations during the deliberations; the winner was designated quickly and by a large majority.


Su-Min Do, the winner chosen by the jury, puts the gesture at the center of its work, the relationship with the surface also. She considers drawing as the foundation of her work, with a few words, we could not have hoped for a better ambassador for the Drawing Award and for drawing in general!

What is interesting in her reasoning is also the emphasis she puts on the process, on the movement and dexterity, over the result only. Her large formats are graphic, effective, imbued with humility.

A young talent to follow...”
