Mr Wee Teng Woon, a Northumbria graduate, is personally funding £40,000 worth of prizes for students.
Minted Northumbria Law graduate Wee Teng Woon has opened his wallet to fund prizes for emerging artists.
The Fellowship at the BxNU Institute for Contemporary Art at BALTIC 39, worth £20,000 will be covered for the winning student of the Woon Tai Jee Art Fellowship. As well as this, an experienced and highly regarded mentor will aid the student during their learning.
Mr. Woon said: “I wanted to set up an award for emerging artists that complements other major art prizes in the UK and supports their art practice, career and early professional development.”
The entries will be scrutinised carefully by a panel of regional and national and international gurus to be shortlisted for an Exhibition at the University next Summer where the winners will be decided and announced.
