Tiziano Foucault-Gini, a 5th year student (Sirjacq workshop), is the winner of the 2021 Contemporary Drawing Prize.
"I can't remember how long I've been drawing. In a childhood full of anger, drawing was an outlet, and allowed me to build myself. Today, it is the foundation of my practice. I practice it without concession, in the permanent idea of surpassing myself. Like boxing, which I have practiced for a long time, and which resonates with the way I work. When I draw, I fight, against myself and my limits." Tiziano Foucault-Gini
