Meet The Judges.

We have assembled a superb cross section of independent judges for this year's competition.

 The judges have been instructed to provide a balanced selection process to give all artists the opportunity to showcase their art directly to these influential, national and city gallery owners.

For London Art 2020 we welcome guest judge John Doubleday to cast a keen eye on  the sculpture entries.

John Doubleday is known for his public bronze sculpture in many countries.  He is, however, a practitioner in a number of media. Much of his non-commission work consists of palimpsests of overlain images concerned with the resonance of memory informing perception.  His recent work includes work in silver and reinterpretations in bronze of still-life images produced over a 50 year period.
