Audi will be championing emerging artistic talent as part of this year's Henley Festival.

The German automotive manufacturer's multi-year partnership with the festival will return for a fifth year as its official car partner.

It will extend its commitment to supporting new creative talents through the Audi High RISE Gallery and Sculpture Garden.

The 2024 Audi High RISE roster features three visual artists and one sculptor from diverse backgrounds and practices.

This initiative seeks to create captivating narratives by empowering artists with a chance to exhibit their work and reach wider audiences.

Every selected artist also receives space in the Audi High RISE Gallery & Sculpture Garden at the Festival to exhibit their works.

Moreover, Audi is also inviting the artists to produce a unique artwork for a silent auction.

The artists will be granted complete creative freedom and will retain every penny generated from the auction.

In the run-up to the festival, the artworks will be showcased at the renowned men's outfitters, Richard James, on London's Savile Row.

Additionally, artists will jointly design a car wrap for Audi's latest fully electric SUV model, the Audi Q8 e-tron, creating an emblematic installation in the Audi Gallery & Sculpture Garden.

The artists selected for Audi High RISE 2024 vary from Conrad P Clarke, a painter capturing the beauty of ecologies, to Beatrice Galletley, a ceramic sculptor playing with scale and forms.

Also featured are Robert Ware, a painter renowned for his distinctive texture and mark-making, and Amie Elizabeth Wolo, a bold, contemporary abstract artist of Liberian heritage.

Andrew Doyle, managing director of Audi UK, said: "We are thrilled to build on our partnership with Henley Festival and support talented emerging artists like Conrad Clarke, Beatrice Galletley, Robert Ware and Amie Elizabeth Wolo in realising their perfectly with the ethos of the festival."

Last year, Audi supported visual artists Sara Hoque, Keren Golea and Sam Smyth.

All three created auction lots with successful sales.

The Henley Festival stands distinct as a five-day black-tie event combining music and arts, set against the picturesque River Thames.

This celebration of culture offers diverse music genres and robust tastes in art and gastronomy.

Audi's commitment to Henley Festival and the RISE initiative provides a fundamental support and creates opportunities for prospective talents across the creative sectors, including music and technical production fields.

Following the success of the previous year's visual artists, Sara Hoque, Keren Golea, and Sam Smyth, Audi looks forward to the festival that runs from July 10 to 14.
