Affordable Art launches online gallery
In the light of COVID-19 pandemic and other issues that shook the world in 2020, which have made art activities to go virtual, Affordable Art Online has launched its gallery.
According to the initiators, “the aim is to make art accessible and create a hub for discovering exciting and socially-engaged artists working in Nigeria, Africa and the diaspora.”
The online gallery offers a unique platform to appreciate and showcase emerging artists from Nigeria and Africa at large. It is also to make art more affordable and accessible to a larger audience worldwide.
The gallery will provide a platform to purchase budget-friendly art, as well as work closely with a diverse range of emerging artists to nurture and solidify their presence and practice towards becoming well-established.
In doing so, the initiators hope to crystallise growing interest in Africa’s contemporary art market.
The gallery launched with over 20 emerging and mid-career artists working across painting, sculpture and photography form. The platform can be accessed from today, November 4, 2020 at www.affordableartonline.co
