Scottish Artist wins the Turner Prize
The Turner prize is widely considered to be the United Kingdom's most publicised art award.
Although the prize is open to all artistic media, is it most often associated with conceptual art forms.
This year's winner, Sculptor Martin Boyce, studied at Glasgow School of Art and is the 3rd Turner Prize winner in a row to come from this vibrant Scottish city, which is also home to ISSOS HQ.
Many experts in the field have coined Glasgow as the the second city of the British art scene, outside of London.
