Elephant's Digital Residency Programme

Elephant LAB is delighted to be offering two artists a 6-week long digital residency in partnership with Art Gazette during Summer 2022.

What you will receive:

The residency will offer two talented emerging artists a bespoke package to support their practice over six weeks. The artists will receive £500-worth of materials, professional support and mentoring from the Elephant team, a digital showcase and exhibition at Art Gazette's studio in Pimlico, London.

We are looking for dynamic, committed, emerging artists who have the potential to develop their practice on an international scale. Elephant’s motto is ‘Life through Art’ and in spirit of this, we are looking for artists who engage with the wider issues of the world, whether that be through painting, sculpture, installation, film, or digital media.

In partnership with Elephant Lab X New Contemporaries.

"I will be creating two new paintings for my current series. I will be working exclusively with oil paints and acrylic paints for each panting, using each of their mediums to manipulate the textures and finishes. Receiving this opportunity will be a great way to challenge my practice as a painter, I have the chance to use these great brands to improve the quality of my work and create some interesting outcomes."
