Congratulations to the 2016 People's Choice winner!

Lea Varghese's captivating work 'Home Street Home' took out the People's Choice Award for the 2016 exhibition.  The year 12, Chanel College student worked with graphite pencil on paper and muslin cloth strips to create this popular artwork.

Artist statement: "Home Street Home" is a fatal embodiment of the struggles and hardships faced by the homeless. The dark lines and tonal variation was purposely used to show the sorrow in their lives. Ragged and impure, muslin cloth represents the lack of protection.
