The 34th Beckers Art Award - a grant of 200 000 SEK - will this year be awarded to Malmö-based artist Youngjae Lih, born in 1984 and from Seoul in South Korea. He graduated from Malmö Art Academy in 2016 and now he works as a junior lecturer at the school.

Beckers Art award was established in 1987 and has since then proven to have a remarkable ability to identify young talent on the brink of a breakthrough in their careers. The winner is awarded a grant, which from this year has been raised from 150 000 to 200 000 SEK, and a solo exhibition that has, since 2001, been arranged and held in collaboration with Färgfabriken.
