ArtAfro is introducing an exciting new exhibition of contemporary African artworks, presenting a number of young gifted artists who depict their own afro centric styles through a range of mediums. The week long event brings together a diverse mix of works from artists whose styles are very evocative, yet contemporary. This forthcoming show sheds light on an ever more emerging pool of creative talent within present-day African Art. The pieces reflect the realities and unique perspectives of their environment. The compositions on display use a selection of vibrant colours that represent rich traditions, humour and a blending of African and European influences. ArtAfro has been collecting and sourcing several African works and expose them via the internet and selective exhibitions. The exhibition at Red Gate Gallery is a showcase for the new trends in African contemporary art and a significant illustration of the innovative works from this dynamic art community. These include works from artists from Gambia, Ghana, Senegal and other countries. ArtAfro consider these artists to be heroes, despite the economic hardships they face, they opt to seek a living through expressing themselves. This exhibition will appeal to anyone interested in viewing or collecting contemporary artworks with unique outlooks, so whatever your motives, come and enjoy a visual treat.
