Edmond Brooks-Beckman

    Edmond Brooks-Beckman is the winner of the 2023 Valerie Beston Artists’ Trust Prize.

    The Valerie Beston Artists’ Trust was established in 2006 after the death of Valerie Beston (1922-2005), who was renowned for supporting and nurturing the careers of many of the leading artists working in London throughout her extraordinary fifty-year career.

    The charity was established to support artists at the beginning of their careers; it has since collaborated with the Royal College of Art to award an annual prize to a postgraduate student selected from its degree show. The prize comprises a studio for a year at SPACE, a financial contribution towards materials, tutorial support generously provided by the RCA, and a solo exhibition at the end of the year, held since 2020 at Ordovas.
