The Royal Society of British Artists is able to offer this major scholarship as a result of a generous bequest from the late Mr. G H Benn in memory of his late wife Marianne Von Werther, a former member of the RBA. The prize is presented with a view to offer an enriching learning experience for a young emerging artist as well as augmenting their professional profile.
It is with great pleasure that the RBA introduce the winner of the Rome Scholarship – Teresa Hunyadi.
Teresa Hunyadi (b. Austria 1985) graduated from the University of Applied Arts Vienna in 2015 and primarily works in sculpture and drawing. 2015 she studied on exchange at the Joshibi University of Arts and Design Japan to pursue her focus on wood carving. Since then Teresa has continued specialised training in working with wood in a contemporary context. As an emerging artist she has exhibited in Austria, France, Japan and the UK. Her current studio is at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. She received multiple awards for her work and was selected for the Emerging Artists Bursary Scheme 2017/18 by the City of Edinburgh Council and Creative Scotland.
