This week, we're proud to present our first curated exhibition.
Over the past five years society has undergone a change that not only affects the financial district of metropolitan cities, the rise of modern technology and communication have also allowed for a change within the cultural spheres of society as we once knew it. The next generation of influences, innovators and leaders has, and is still experiencing a rise in living costs, university fees trebling and multiple funding cuts especially in the arts. Rather than allowing these social factors to manifest and rule, this collective of London based artists are amongst the few who actively revolt such norms through their various disciplines, showing the youth are thriving and here to remain.
Photographer and graffiti artist Hype Mari captures the urban lifestyle in his photography with a knack for stylised shoots heavily nostalgic of 80’s/90’s R&B culture. Artist Hamed Maiye uses traditional art techniques to create a new contemporary art image, often reflective of social insecurities. Marco Grey captures the heart and soul of London through the nostalgic, cold hues of Grime DVD’s and cyphers through both film and photography. Designer and graffiti artist Ryan Hawaii holds a very crude and political style reminiscent of Basquiat, his work has a major influence on London current urban scene.
Drinks will be provided by East London Liquor Co.
With rejection comes evolution and a new wave of innovation.
