Award-winning Art & Design student Deividas Bukauskas has added another achievement to his growing list – his artwork was selected by the BBC to feature on their news website.
Deividas, who studied at New City College’s Havering Sixth Form campus, won the college’s Art & Design Student of the Year prize this year, pictured above with Principal Janet Smith, for his remarkable progression, creativity and effort.
His photography work was entered into the Sixth Form Colleges Association’s annual art exhibition called Planet Future – and was then one of just a small selection of artworks picked by the BBC to be showcased on their In Pictures online section.
Deividas said: “I am really proud to have my work published on the BBC website. It shows the hard work I put into my final project for A Level Photography has paid off! I think the best feeling throughout this achievement is how proud my friends and family are, which motivates me to continue producing the best work I possibly can.
“I am really grateful for the facilities that Havering Sixth Form had to offer and I must also give a big thank you to Cat (my photography teacher) as she was always there pushing me, making sure I was working at my full ability and even helping organise and provide props for photoshoots during her free time.”
