Cutting-edge and Exciting Exhibition by Hang Up Gallery at Moniker Art Fair

 

Hang-Up Gallery are highly excited to announce they will be participating in this years Moniker Art Fair. The team will be heading down to East London’s Old Truman Brewery to display brand new collections from artists Mark Powell, Joe Webb, Magnus Gjoen and Lauren Baker.

Each artist will bring something new to the table, pushing their practices further and promising something fresh, cutting-edge and exciting. Off the back of last month’s sellout show ‘Drawing on History’ at Hang-Up Gallery, biro artist Mark Powell will be pushing the boundaries with his latest body of work created specially for Moniker.  Expect to see large-scale drawings on antique maps and vintage documents to wow the crowds yet again. In the Hang-Up booth you will also see the current collection of quirky retro collages from Joe Webb alongside detailed oil paintings, a new and exciting direction for the artist.  Hang-Up will also be showcasing some fantastic original works by Magnus Gjoen. His delicate images of beauty and death will be enhanced with light-boxes and gold leaf. The gallery will welcome new artist Lauren Baker, exhibiting her innovative neon sculptures alongside a show-stopping 6ft infinity coffin.

Hang-Up will be collaborating with Jealous Gallery to produce and release an exclusive limited edition screen print by Mark Powell.  The artist will be present at Moniker on Saturday 18 October to sign each print.

Moniker Art Fair returns for its fourth year, having established itself as London’s premiere event for contemporary art with its roots embedded in urban culture.  This year sees the fair take another ground-breaking step by venue-sharing with London’s leading artist-led fair – The Other Art Fair – in what will be a showcase of independent and established talent all under one roof in East London’s iconic Old Truman Brewery. The new partnership emphasizes both fairs formidable reputations for showcasing artists operating under the radar of the traditional art establishment.

Private View: Thursday 17 Oct 6-9pm | Open to public: Fri 18 & Sat 19 11am-7pm, Sun 20 11am-6pm.

Hang-Up is a London based contemporary art gallery located in the vibrant and bohemian neighbourhood of Stoke Newington. The gallery presents a dynamic exhibition program of fresh and forward thinking work from our roster of artists, photographers and makers. We show both young artists at the early stages of their careers alongside established names from the art world. We tie it together by seeking out and showing only those who are inherently creative, artists whom in some way break the mould from the traditional, pushing the boundaries either in terms of their work, their message or both. Artists that have shown at the gallery include Norwegian born Magnus Gjoen, taxidermist Nancy Fouts, London artist Rosie Emerson, political duo kennardphillips, collage artist extraordinaire Joe Webb, London based biro artist Mark Powell and Godfather of Pop, Sir Peter Blake.

Hang-Up was formed in 2008 as an online gallery, launching as a street art website specialising in highly collectible and sought after limited edition prints. Renamed as Hang-Up Urban, it has now grown to become Europe’s leading online urban art gallery. In addition to our extensive gallery inventory we have close links with a global network of galleries, publishers, dealers and private collectors enabling us to source specific artworks requests quickly and efficiently. Over the years we have built up a particular following and reputation for our ability to source rare limited edition Banksy prints, and pride ourselves in being able to do so, regularly selling and buying on behalf of our international client list.

In 2010 we launched Hang-Up Contemporary, a second online gallery dealing in contemporary editions, working closely with an international roster of established and emerging artists and publishers including Stanley Donwood, Anja Niemi, Russell Young, Harland Miller and Dan Baldwin. Like Hang-Up Urban we deal in an even wider range of contemporary editions from established artists.

In 2013, following feedback from our customers, we have taken the decision to launch a new site that combines Hang-Up Urban, Hang-Up Contemporary and Hang-Up Gallery into one responsive website, optimised for however you choose to view it, on mobiles, tablets or desktops. The aim to simplify the experience, making it easier to search, browse and buy online.
