On Saturday 19th December, Africa’s premier online gallery Artyrama launched an experiential pop up gallery for two days, hosting a collection of contemporary African art with 20 emerging artists curated by renowned art critic Jess Castellote.
The exhibition had an urban, yet authentic feel to it, in a relaxed environment nestled in South West Ikoyi featuring some of the very best of Nigerian emerging artists with exclusive original paintings, limited edition prints and sculptures. Exhibiting artists included: Dipo Doherty, Ayobola Kekere-Ekun, Tunde Alara, Ifedoyin Shotunde, Promise O’Nali, Ken Nwadiogbu, John Madu, Abba Makama, Stacey Ravvero, Williams Chechet, Yadichinma, John Madu, Amarachi Odimba, Sadiq Williams, Joseph Ogbeode and Yelloseese Uwaoma. The turnout was impressive, with gallery loving folk, and novices mingling with an array of talented artists and art enthusiasts, as they enjoyed cocktails from Bombay Sapphire and appreciated the artwork on display.
One of the highlights of the event was Artyrama's offline digital gallery - allowing guests to physically experience its colossal digital catalogue on www.artyramaonline.com . As the online gallery does not have a permanent collection there's always something fresh and exciting to see - with the variety of art available on the website it’s hard to find something that doesn't intrigue you.
