Congratulations to Sebastian Crupi,a past student at Kew High school in 2021 who will be represented in theTopshots exhibition. Sebastian created his work in his Studio Arts class. It is an appropriation of a work by Olive Cotton, Tea cup ballet, 1935. Sebastian’s work focuses on the ideas of “Routine” – ‘The coffee routine’ and ‘The everyday, the mundane’. A great achievement to be represented in this exhibition and to be considered for this esteemed prize.

TOPshots is an annual celebration of emerging photomedia artists at MGA. Established more than a decade ago, this award and exhibition continues to showcase exceptional photographic work produced by students who have completed the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) subjects of Art, Media and Studio Arts, as well as the International Baccalaureate (IB) Visual Arts.
The artworks displayed in this exhibition have been selected from a large pool of entries and represent a small sample of the creative talent that emerged out of Melbourne’s high schools in 2021. MGA is proud to have the opportunity to foreground and acknowledge the excellence of young photomedia artists in our community, while providing a vital platform for these artists to share and exhibit their work.
