Special Effects students Enya Hansford and Tsvetelina Maninkova from the Aylesbury campus have been selected to exhibit their work at Origins Creative Arts Festival taking place at the Truman Brewery in London this month.
Enya’s submission titled Gods and Legends is a Minotaur made up of a latex mask and body make-up. Tsvetelina’s submission is titled Freak Show, and is a clay sculpt of a hybrid creature. Their work caught the attention of UAL Awarding Body’s curators who had received over 360 submissions for the festival.
Origins Creative Arts Festival is organised by Awarding Organisation UAL Awarding Body and provides art lovers, critics, industry professionals from the creative sector, the chance to meet original 14-18 creative talent from across the UK.
The festival is free and showcases creative works in fashion, performing arts and music to sculpture, fine art and creative media, picked from some of the UK’s most talented students at schools and FE institutions taking pre-degree creative arts subjects.
Origins promises a unique first look at these as-yet-unseen future stars of the creative scene. Open to the public and expected to attract thousands of visitors over the three days, with entertainment on site, the programme includes an awards event to select the top work across each subject area, guest speakers, and performance tie-ins with Barbican Box.
