Bird. Humming.

Tyga will be (proudly!) displayed at the 2018 CWC exhibition at the renowned Bankside Gallery in London (home of the RWS) from Friday 2 to Wednesday 14 March 2018.

The Royal Watercolour Society’s annual Contemporary Watercolour Competition encourages innovation, experimentation and technical expertise in all water-based media and provides a platform for established and emerging international artists.

Works are selected by a distinguished panel of judges who work in diverse areas of the contemporary art world. The 2018 CWC judging panel comprised Marjorie Allthorpe-Guyton (President AICAUK), Keir McGuinness (Art & Management Consultant), Jill Leman (RWS President), Mark Raggett (RWS Vice President), Angie Lewin (RWS RE), and David Hamilton (ARWS).

From 2-14 March 2018, TJILI and the other successful artists have the honour and exposure of their works being publicly exhibited at the 2018 CWC exhibition, and made available for sale to the public.
