Chelle Destefano Update
Since winning the Dawn Slade-Faull Award in 2014, Chelle Destefano has gone from strength to strength. She exhibited in Venice in 2015, Paris and London in 2016, then to Berlin for an arts exchange program, followed by an exhibition in Rome in 2017. Recently, Chelle moved to Melbourne to further her art. She was a finalist in four art prizes in 2019 and (so far) one in 2020, had a major solo exhibition at the Incinerator Gallery, and has been accepted into Masters of Contemporary Art at Melbourne University. And to cap it all off: next year (delayed thanks to Covid-19), she is off to Italy for an artist residency with the prestigious Siena Art Institute!
