Paul Curtis is Merseyside Artist of the Year 2020
Fantastic news! Paul Curtis has been named as Liverpool City Region's Artist of the Year 2020. Following public nominations, Paul was shortlisted by the Merseyside councils. A panel of judges decided on the winner from this shortlist.
The award means a great deal to me. I have never received any awards for my artwork before so to win this, especially when up against stiff competition, is something special. I want to thank everyone who has supported me along the way, especially those who stuck with me at the beginning. I've worked really hard for the last three or four years and to get an official recognition of this calibre convinces me I wasn't deluded when I chose to become an artist! Hopefully this is just the start, I'm planning many big projects this year, so onwards and upwards!"
