A fresh new art competition giving representation to everyone who enters. Calling all makers / painters / illustrators / sound designers / sculptors and all other creatives!
The Refresh Art Award was set up in 2017 as a biannual art award to showcase contemporary artists who were making art about the world around them, and not just fruit bowls, flowers and hyperreal portraiture that sells. After our first show in 2019, we are BACK in 2021 to create the next snapshot of the true face of contemporary art now. Refresh are proud to be borderless and open to international entries.
