British artist Brian Dawn Chalkley is the recipient of the 2022 David and Yuko Juda Art Foundation Grant. The grant gives £50,000 to an artist to help alleviate some of their financial pressures and give them freedom to concentrate on their practice. The announcement was made at 7pm on Wednesday 14th September 2022 at Annely Juda Fine Art in London
The deciding panel for this year’s grant was made up of the Foundation’s trustees, David and Yuko Juda, Nina Fellmann, Rupert Faulkner and Paul Calkin, joined by Andrea Rose (Former Director of Visual Arts, British Council), Reinhard Spieler (Director of the SprengelMuseum, Hannover) and Jonathan Watkins (former Director of IKON, Birmingham).
This year choosing was incredibly difficult-all eight could have been awarded the grant. However, we felt that Brian Dawn Chalkley’s work stood out as somehow quite different and was a revelation to us all.David and Yuko Juda
