Mania makes the most of his bigfoot prospects

You may know by now that the stylishly-monikered Andrew Mania has scooped the £10 000 Pizza Express Prospects prize (DW 30 August).

But I bet you didn’t know Mania’s winning work was inspired by his mother’s chance encounter with a yeti in Russia many years ago.

The Chelsea College of Art graduate’s entry, Yetiscape, was one of 800 original entries, and Mania is planning on spending his prize money trying to track the yeti down himself.
