Amartey Golding (b. 1988, London; based in Norwich) is a visual artist who was raised as a Rastafarian to an Anglo-Scottish mother, Ghanaian father, and Jamaican stepfather. Through the use of sculpture, film, and 2D work, he explores the portrayal of Black masculinity in the media and homophobia within Black British communities. Preferring to work with mediums he is untrained in, he has also experimented with printmaking, fashion, and ballet.
Neil Price is a writer, educator and editor. His writing on art, culture and community has appeared in Ocula Magazine, NOW Magazine, Frieze, Momus, Globe and Mail, BlackFlash, Hazlitt, and Canadian Art, among other publications. He is the former Reviews Editor at Humber Literary Review.
