With the increasing number of phenomenal female, black artists doing impossibly amazing things, I’m always genuinely stoked to see these artists given a platform to put their work out there.
Offering a selection of artwork (from some of my favorites) ranging from photography, to paintings, to digital art, to graphic design, R + Co Art Shop, is bridging the gap between emerging artists and prospective collectors.
The concept for R + Co Art Shop started from a conversation on a bus ride in the streets of Accra. Founder, Sharon Obuobi, had been managing an online platform, African & Afro-Diasporan Art Talks, and she dreamt of creating an art space to enable emerging artists to showcase their artworks and be supported by an art buying audience.
For their Fall Campaign, R + Co Art Shop is curating a bespoke selection of affordable art from emerging artists. Including some Nik-nak favorites. Yaassssss! You should brighten your home with some of these.
If you’ve ever given thought to having a collection of art, here’s your chance. And if you haven’t, well, what are you waiting for? The works are quite affordable, we promise.
