Four city high school pupils have had their artwork selected for a prestigious art show at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.  

The annual Young Artists' Summer Show is open to submissions from young artists aged between four and 19 studying in the UK.  

Principal of Hewett Academy, Antony Little, said: “To have had so many pieces selected for such a prestigious exhibition like the Royal Academy is a tribute to the talent, hard work and dedication of our Hewett Academy." 

The talented Hewett Academy pupils are year seven pupil Nicola Radosz and year 11 trio Olivia Kenyon, Lacy Mills and Ben Varghese.

Olivia's acrylic painting features a double portrait of two close figures staring intently into each other's eyes warmly.  

Lacy submitted an alternative, high-fidelity portrait of her grandad in which he is featured as a highly detailed pair of hands holding a beloved pigeon against a dark background.

Lacy is close to her grandad and wanted to capture his caring and loving nature. 

Ben's wooden sculpture, entitled Red House, is of a building inspired by scaffolding, nests and Japanese architecture.

Nicola created her modern oil pastel pattern inspired by Monet’s Waterlilies and the dreamtime mapping of the Indigenous Australians following her art lessons which challenged year seven approaches to recording landscapes.  

She is keen to develop this work into a textiles print.

Hewett principal Mr Little added: “I can scarcely express how proud we are of them, and it goes to show that Hewett students can go anywhere that their talents take them. 

“I want to pay particular tribute to Lacy Mills, who joins a highly selected group who have had works exhibited at the Royal Academy twice."
