Rele Arts Foundation has announced the third edition of its ‘Young Contemporaries’ initiative.

The initiative is aimed at identifying, promoting, and mentoring young Nigerian visual artists, giving them the tools needed to succeed critically and commercially in the global art marketplace.

Yasser Claud-Ennin, Habeeb Andu, Abisola Gbadamosi, Dandelion Egho Eghosa and Samuel Olowomeye are the young artists whose works will be on display at Rele Gallery, Onikan, on January 14.

Their works will border on themes of multi-layered identities, sexuality, and socio-political discourse.

In 2017, Rele Gallery hosted a number of eye-catching exhibitions.

The memorable ‘AYOOLA’ showcased works on abstract expressionism, abstract landscape, abstract figuration and human anthropology by the prolific visual artist, Ayoola Gbolahan.

The gallery also hosted Art Salon featuring a body of work entitled ‘Beyond Oil’ by Chamberlin Ukenedo.
