At the BP Portrait Award 2012 Awards Ceremony on 19 June 2012 the Second Prize was awarded to Ignacio Estudillo for El abuelo (Augusta Estudillo).
Ignacio Estudillo lives and works in Córdoba, Spain and studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Jerez de la Frontera, and the Real Academia de Bellas Artes of Seville. His work has been exhibited at ArtMadrid 2011 and is in the collection of Museu Europea D’Art Modern, MEAM.
The portrait is of his paternal grandfather. He says: ‘It’s not a purely analytical portrait of my grandfather, but a way of showing part of the human condition to which he belongs. I’m not only creating a portrait of my grandfather but also revealing a part of myself.’
