The story behind the Art:

Message from our winner Ava:

'Key workers of London, 2022,
My artwork features a Doctor, Teacher, Policeman and a Cashier worker in Front of a marbled background.
I created this outcome to celebrate the tremendous work and dedication of the front-line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They are the true heroes.'
