Sahara Longe, Ejatu in Pink and Green, 2021

A frolicking Friday mood by Brixton-based painter Sahara Longe, one of our featured artists to watch in 2022. “Longe’s glorious paintings show an adept knowledge of the styles and aesthetics favoured by some of the best-known names of the Eurocentric historical canon (from Titian to Gauguin),” writes Holly Black, “and her new interpretations, which place Black figures front and centre, are filled with allusions, without ever crossing the line into pastiche.” Discover more about Longe’s practice, and see which other artists you should be keeping an eye on, here.
