Britain’s Best Young Artist arrives at Tate Modern this Easter
Visitors to Tate Modern Museum in London will be able to view the work of ‘Britain’s Best Young Artist’ as the winning painting of the 2023 CBBC series goes on public display at the gallery from 1 April.
Chloe, aged 14 from Newcastle, competed against 26 young artists from across the UK to be crowned the winner of ‘Britain’s Best Young Artist’ earlier this month.
The final episode of the series saw three finalists each participate in a masterclass with a professional artist at Tate Modern, before returning to the studio to create their final work.
Chloe’s winning painting titled ‘Homage’ 2022 was selected by presenters Sadie Clayton and Ricky Martin, alongside Tate’s Director of Learning, Mark Miller.
Describing the work, Chloe said: “My painting is about my appreciation of my home, not only my home in the UK but my home in Africa, and how I cherish the memories that are enclosed in the four walls I inhabit daily.
“It’s about the beauty of the mundane and how something so ordinary can mean so much to someone.”
Chloe added that having her work displayed at Tate Modern was a dream of hers. She said: “I’m grateful so many people get to see my work and interpret it how they want to.”
Visitors will be able to view Chloe’s work on the Level 4 concourse of Tate Modern’s Natalie Bell Building between 1 – 30 April 2023. More information is available on Tate’s website.
For those looking to follow in Chloe’s artistic footsteps, Tate Draw now has an additional space on Level 3 in Tate Modern’s Blavatnik Building, offering a brand-new area for children to get creative.
Digital sketch pads allow visitors to create their own drawings inspired by the art in the galleries, with all finished sketches projected onto the gallery wall. Participants can also download and save their work of art to a phone or order a custom T-shirt to proudly wear their creations at home.
