Zoe Kirkwood, a graduate of the University of South took out the prize for her bold and bright installation consisting of painting and sculptures. It's hard not to be utterly captivated by such a piece, the colours and composition is feel-good and takes surrealism to a new dimension.

Her major work called, 'Dancing Chopsticks' is an interactive piece that shouldn't be missed, so make sure that you check it out PICA.

I loved attending the opening night, and sharing memories with some fellow artists. A couple of glasses of wine and good company is always a great night in my opinion.
