Alumni launches Yellow Magazine

Graphics alumni Oreoluwa Ayoade (Abi) has returned to Wolverhampton School of Art to share some of his latest work with current Visual Communication Students. Abi who works in advertising has also recently launched Yellow Magazine with his sister. 

Yellow is a magazine of journeys, ranging from childhood to maturity; in its pages, ethnic minority artists have the liberty to recount and reflect on their working process, focusing on what makes them artists, and where it all began. Beginning with the marginalisation of artists of colour, Yellow creates a space where their work stands tall, is normalised and emboldened.

The first Issue of Yellow focusses on Illustration and is receiving much press coverage and critical acclaim.

Abi and his sister intend to maintain and build on the space they have created and are hope to organise and curate events to expand on the current print and online platforms; “we are looking to create physical spaces where our featured artists can exist.” In particular, they are organising two exhibitions to coincide with the launch of the second issue at the end of April, which will focus on photography.

Yellow can be bought here and is also on sale at the Tate.
