An art and design student won top prize for her digital art display in a prestigious exhibition in London.
Amelia Al-Attar, 19, a student at Abingdon & Witney College, was awarded the overall winner’s prize for her contribution at the University of London’s (UAL) annual exhibition, Origins, on July 6.
For the winning piece, Amelia removed herself from a series of family pictures in a photo album, above, through a complex digital process, contrasting this alongside untouched photos. As a student on the Level 3 Foundation diploma in art and design course, she applied the skills she learnt from her time at the college, and achieved a unique result.
Di Batchelor, principal at Abingdon & Witney College, said: “Amelia has done fantastically well to win this award. Along with the other students who also had their works on display at the exhibition, she is a testament to the success of our creative faculty at the College and clearly has a great future ahead of her.”
Now in its seventh year, the exhibition at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane celebrates the works of students studying UAL Awarding Body qualifications. There were seven pieces overall from the college, among a total of 450 works being submitted for the exhibition.
