2018 JADA: Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award

2018 JADA: Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award

Now in its 30th year the Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award celebrates excellence in contemporary drawing.

The Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award (JADA) is Grafton Gallery’s flagship biennial art prize featuring drawing in all its splendour from unbelievable hyper-realism to the expressive and the abstract, evoking the poetic and emotional response to the human condition and our environment.

Many of the works selected question and challenge the notion of traditional drawing; while others provide a contemporary perspective and reinvigorate those traditions.
