For the sixth consecutive year, Viarco will be present at the fair and award the New Drawing Talent Award – Drawing Room Lisboa & Viarco, which aims to offer an artist from Drawing Room Lisboa, at the beginning of their career, the opportunity to carry out an artistic residency at the Portuguese factory of pencils, complemented by a stay at the Oliva Creative Factory.
During the residency at Viarco, the young creator will join the list of artists who have already received the grant: Irene Gozález, Matías Ercole, Ana Romãozinho, Guillermo de Foucault and António Neves Nobre. He will have the opportunity to work in creative freedom, drawing inspiration from the experiences, materials and reflections of the workspace that surrounds him to give rise to the act of drawing. The Viarco prize also includes the offer of a kit of specific drawing materials, thus giving the young creator the tools and raw material to develop their creative project.
Viarco & Drawing Room Lisbon “draw” partnerships since the first edition!
