A painting featuring a werewolf is in the running for the John Moores Contemporary Painting Prize. Woman Surprised By Werewolf, a painting by Stuart Pearson Wright, is one of 40 paintings vying for the first prize of £25,000. As reported by guardian.co.uk, ArtDaily.org and Times Online, the painting was inspired by An American Werewolf in London. All 40 paintings will be exhibited at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool between September 20th and January 4th, and the winners will be announced the first day of the exhibition.
