Leterece's Prints of Africa selected from over 2,000 entries

 

 Leterece's artwork, Prints of Africa, has been selected from over 2,000 submissions to feature in the Royal Academy of Arts' A-Level Summer Exhibition Online 2015. The 38 works of art on display were judged to be exceptional by an expert panel consisting of Andrea Tarsia (Head of RA Exhibitions), RA Schools student Maria de Lima and artist Lisa Milroy. The exhibition showcases Britain’s best young artistic talent and features a rich variety of styles and media from painting, drawing and sculpture to video, prints and photography.
 
Leterece’s self-portrait collage and screen print (right) was inspired by Faith Ringgold’s 1967 piece Soul Sister. She writes: ‘Ringgold was influenced by African art and mask life works, which formed my idea of collaging African prints to reflect the beauty and tonal ranges of black skin.’
 
Having her work selected is a fantastic achievement for Leterece; the exhibition is viewed as the online equivalent of the oldest and largest open entry art show in the world, the Royal Academy of ArtsSummer Exhibition (8th June – 16th August 2015), with which it coincides.
