Rafaela Mincov Campos, 18 has been selected to exhibit their work at Origins Creatives, taking place at the Truman Brewery in July 2022.
Rafaela’s submission, titled Out of Sight, explores social anxiety and vulnerability and caught the attention of UAL Awarding Body’s curator amongst nearly 500 submissions.
Rafaela studied UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Creative Practice: Art, Design and Communication, equivalent to 3 A Levels, the Visual Arts & Design at The BRIT School which trains young people to explore a variety of technical skills within Fine art (sculpture, painting & drawing), photography/film, print, graphics and illustration.
Chris Waite, Director of Visual Art and Design said, “Rafaela's work is an amazing example of many students from the Visual Art & Design department who have successfully completed the extended diploma this year. This work is such an accomplishment Rafaela and demonstrates hard work and a dedication to the creative arts.”
Origins Creatives is organised by UAL Awarding Body and provides art lovers, critics and industry professionals from the creative sector the chance to discover original creative talent from across the UK and celebrate students’ creativity and hard work.
The free exhibition showcases work from some of the UK’s most talented students in FE institutions studying across the UAL subject areas of Art and Design, Fashion Business and Retail, Creative Media, Music Performance and Production and Performing Arts.
This year, Origins Creatives will be an in-person exhibition at The Truman Brewery in Shoreditch. The exhibition will open with an invite-only private view on 21 July at 6pm. It will be open to the public from the 22 – 24 July, alongside an online showcase.
The exhibition will showcase selected work created by students from Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 across all subject areas. You can expect to see a diverse range of painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, fashion and more. Within the exhibition, a Soundcloud music playlist and showreel of moving images comprised of student work will be played.
