Every single piece of art I saw in the gallery was captivating. Rele gallery is a contemporary art gallery owned by Adenrele Sonariwo, a passionate professional who quit her job at one of the big four consulting firms to establish the art gallery (read more and watch here).
Stepping into the gallery I felt a warmth environment and to crown that feeling, I was welcomed with a big smile and offered the most comfortable seat ever. I immediately knew I was at the right place.
I was informed that there was ongoing preparation for an art exhibition which was to take place the next day in the basement (ground floor). Irrespective of the ongoing preparations, the lady I met still was kind enough to take me on a tour of the gallery. As we walked around, we talked about how passionate I was about art and also discussed the brain behind Rele. I noticed the place wasn't overly crowded (less confusing)with art workand so well organised.
Like a colleague said, the gallery is an embodiment of beauty.
