After weeks of voting, we are delighted to announce our Art of the Year winner – Woz Oliver!

Woz entered first Art of the Month in April and was victorious with his 33 x 23 inch oil painting of Peaky Blinders protagonist, Tommy Shelby.

He began painting in 2013 as a hobby but his skills led him to retire from his job as a professional MMA coach to pursue art full-time. Much like his winning entry of Tommy Shelby, Woz’s artwork is centred around many recognisable faces such as; Mike Tyson, the Gallagher brothers (Oasis), David Bowie, Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), The Joker, Thor, Bob Marley and Princess Leia.

His work has also been celebrated in several exhibitions such as; the Gerry Laffy art collective at Lauderdale House in 2020, “Asylum 2 return to the crypt” in new church London, where his work featured alongside other artists such as Banksy, Mason Storm, Gerry Laffy and many others. Woz also had a solo exhibition in Sunderland at FSG gallery called Heroes and Villians.

As well as the publicity of winning the competition Woz has also earnt himself a shipping voucher to use in a PACK & SEND service centre of his choice to send his artwork to his clients.
