Helvetia Art Prize

The Helvetia Art Prize for graduates of Swiss colleges of visual arts and media is given annually to a young artist at the start of his career. The encouragement prize includes a monetary award of CHF 15 000 and a curated exhibition at the LISTE. It affirms and expands the insurance group’s longstanding commitment to art production in Switzerland.

Winner 2017:
Born in 1993, Andriu Deplazes has a degree in fine art from Zurich University of the Arts. His artistic interests lie in figurative painting. Naked, strangely androgynous bodies are forlornly set in heavenly or apocalyptic landscapes. With their ambiguous expressions and bald heads, these curious figures seem repulsive but also poignant. In his large-scale canvases, Andriu Deplazes consciously makes allusions to art history and yet creates his own very personal imagery. His skilful approach to composition and his bold and distinctive artistic stance are striking.
