Zi Ling & the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize exhibition

Zi Ling's watercolour entitled 'Cigarette Break' (2015) is in the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize 2016 at the Mall Galleries. Ling creates portraits or explorations of relationships by working from photographs with which she feels an intuitive connection. Previously Ling has had work in the Columbia Threadneedle Prize exhibition, the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition exhibition, and Society of Women Artists (where she won the Rosemary & Company Art Prize); all at Mall Galleries.

Now in its eleventh year, the Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize is an open competition, which encourages the very best creative representational painting and promotes the skill of draughtsmanship. Created in 2005 by The Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers and The Lynn Foundation, the competition is one of the most prestigious awards for artists in the UK, this year offering total prize money of £30,000. The exhibition features the very best in British figurative painting, showcasing work of both established and young contemporary artists, as chosen by a panel of highly regarded art world figures.

This annual exhibition is held at the Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1. The 2016 exhibition is there until 13 March followed by a touring exhibition to Guildford House Gallery from 25 June – 17 July 2016. Approximately 100 paintings are selected for exhibition and all works are for sale.
