john moores painting prize winners

Five artists have been shortlisted for the £25,000 British art competition, the John Moores Painting Prize. The 5 artists are Rae Hicks, Juliette Losq, Mandy Payne, Alessandro Raho and Rose Wylie. Past winners of the prestigious art award include David Hockney in 1967, Mary Martin in 1969, Peter Doig in 1993 and Sarah Pickstone in 2012. Out of the 5 paintings shortlisted I would go with the Rae Hicks work.
