We are delighted to announce the winner of the Plymouth College of Art Student Prize as Chitra Parvathy Merchant.
Chitra Parvathy Merchant, sketchbook pages
Chitra Merchant grew up in India and currently works as a Printmaker in Bristol, U.K since 2000. Much of Chitra’s work is strongly informed by her Indian upbringing.

Her love of drawing and colour always form the starting point of any work.
For her, keeping sketchbooks is vital to her practice. They are a way of recording ideas and thoughts in a safe and intimate format. But most of all, they remain for her, a way of keeping alert and alive to creative possibilities.
