Contemporary Art Insider

Rachel Ralph’s interest in the art world stemmed from an unconventional place: her love of the skateboarding scene. Her fascination with unique forms of expression grew from there, and it naturally lent itself to street art more than traditional methods. Equipped with a master’s in the history and theory of contemporary art, Rachel currently works in the gallery of FFDG and writes for their website. She has four years of museum and gallery experience under her belt.
