A Dunedin art student has been awarded a top national prize for emerging artists.

Cobi Taylor was the only South Island artist to win a 2014 New Zealand Art Show emerging artist award.

The annual $2500 prizes are awarded to four New Zealand visual arts students who have been nominated by their tutors.

The other award winners were Alice King and Alvin Xiong (Elam School of Fine Arts, Auckland) and Willough McFarlane (College of Creative Arts, Wellington).

Ms Taylor (21) is an Otago Polytechnic Dunedin School of Art postgraduate honours student.

Her ink and dye on stretched canvas work, Palpitations, was inspired by the Christchurch earthquakes.
