The Art School had the pleasure of being invited to OL Riko Matsuyama’s end of year Art Foundation show at the City & Guilds of London Art School on 21 May. After winning the A Level Art Prize in 2018 at Lancing, Riko’s creative endeavours were recognised yet again as she was awarded a Distinction for her studies and the accolade of the Principal’s Prize for Outstanding Work at the show. Riko describes her work as something chaotic that cannot be defined as two- or three-dimensional. Her inspiration comes from events that have happened all around the world, in particular the 2011 Tsunami in Tohoku, Japan. She is due to continue developing her amazing talents as she embarks on BA Architecture at Central Saint Martins in the autumn.
Congratulations Riko – we can’t wait for our next invite!
