Oil on board

Magali won for her proposal to travel to a community of bronze-smelters in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, West Africa. There she will live with and represent the artists, apprentices and labourers whose lives revolve around the foundry. On a previous visit to Bobo-Dioulasso Magali was inspired by the vivid colours of the local landscape, clothes and architecture and will use the sketches made on that trip to develop a series of portraits on wood.

BP Travel Award 2015: £6,000

All selected artists were invited to apply for the BP Travel Award 2015 and the resulting work will be displayed as part of the BP Portrait Award 2016 exhibition.
