Simon Denny-2013 Young Alumnus Of The Year

Chartwell congratulates Simon Denny who is to be awarded the University of Auckland 2013 Young Alumnus of the Year in a ceremony at the University in March 2013."The University of Auckland gave me the rudiments of a language that would enable me to communicate with people around the world," he said. "Denny has already established an international career as an artist, an outstanding achievement for a 29 year old from New Zealand," the University says. He was named as a winner of the Baloise Art Prize at the 43rd Art Basel recently and was one of four nominees for the German national Preis der Nationalgalarie fur junge Kunst 2013, which will be judged in September 2013. He was a recent finalist in the 2012 Walters Prize Award at Auckland Art Gallery and is represented in the Chartwell Collection.
