Congratulations to Jasper Knight who is a finalist in the Paddington Art Prize with his work 'Red Ladder, Yellow Ladder' 2016, enamel, acrylic, masonite, plywood, perspex and copper on board.
The Paddington Art Prize is a $25,000 National acquisitive prize for a painting inspired by the Australian landscape and is now in it's 13th year. An exciting addition to the Australian Arts calendar, the Paddington Art Prize takes its place among the country's most lucrative and highly coveted painting prizes. The prize encourages the interpretation of the landscape as a significant contemporary genre, its long tradition in Australian painting as a key contributor to our national ethos, and is a positive initiative in private patronage of the arts in Australia.

Jasper Knight recently collaborated with Ovolo 1888 Hotel Pyrmont to create vibrant spaces in each room of the hotel. Ovolo Hotels is an independent company headquartered in Hong Kong, operating a collection of individually designed lifestyle hotels.
Jasper is currently undergoing an artist residency at The Standard Hotel in Los Angeles. Just as Mark Whalen had in October this year, Jasper will paint the 6th St Mural, his first large-scale public project. The mural is a twelve by twenty-four meter public art space, located on a major public thoroughfare adjacent to the Standard.
