2018 JADA

Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award

JADA celebrates drawing in all its splendour from hyper-realism that is beyond belief 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.
