This week were were delighted to see one of our students Yu Jin Ahn receiving her award for the Highest Mark in the World in Edexcel GCSE Art, Craft and Design.
Yu Jin has been a prominent member of St Andrew’s Art Department for some time now and is currently completing her IB Visual Arts course. In March, Yu Jin was nominated ‘Artist of the Week’ for her piece ‘Prejudice’, pictured below, and has continued to produce a highly creative portfolio of artwork. Favouring a figurative approach, Yu Jin’s work also has subtle conceptual qualities, suggesting the tensions between nature and popular culture. We would like to congratulate Yu Jin on her award, as well as her continued success in the Visual Arts. The work below is from Yu Jin’s current practice, as well as some earlier pieces from GCSE that helped her win her prestigious award
