One of the elements that I’m hoping to incorporate through this blog is an exposure to emerging artists. A gallery I’ve found in London has collected a great roster of artists working in a mix of different styles and mediums, each speaking to uniquely approached themes of identity, modern practice rooted in traditional techniques, how we interact with space, and more.
The Unit is a fairly recent gallery settled near Seven Dials, started with an intention, as their homepage says, “to break down the barriers of elitism and include contemporary art world enthusiasts, first-timers, emerging collectors, public institutions or private foundations- [believing in] including everyone to enjoy art”. Their belief in creating a pressure-free, exploratory and inviting art experience is a welcome reprieve from what can often feel intimidating and exclusive within the commercial art world.
Here are a handful of the artists I’m fan girling over at the moment, all represented by The Unit.
