From online gallery to one of the freshest art venues in East London, Hang-Up Gallery showcases some of the best urban artists in the world.

From online gallery to one of the freshest art venues in East London, Hang-Up Gallery showcases some of the best urban artists in the world.

Hang-Up is always on the lookout for art that is out of the ordinary. They are constantly changing their exhibitions, featuring new emerging urban artists as well as established names in the industry like Banksy, whose art they’ve been dealing with for years. Some of his most iconic pieces can be found in the permanent display set up for the artist: The Banksy Bunker. This is a small yet mesmerising room with some of the street artist’s most memorable pieces, like Girl with a Balloon and Pulp Fiction Bananas.


Hang-Up Gallery has been a magnet for art enthusiasts in London in the past few months. Earlier exhibitions included Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova, who collaborated with the Connor Brothers in a show to raise awareness of the refugees’ plight in Europe, a project that was born after the artist duo visited refugee camp ‘The Jungle’ in Calais.


Other exhibitions change every couple of weeks, like the most recent, ‘Hibernate’ where work from some of the best urban and contemporary artists of the year has been curated. The list includes Haarland Miller, Sir Peter Blake, Invader and Takashi Murakami. Also selected artwork by Dave White, Joe Webb and contemporary light artist Lauren Baker, whose neon piece I love you to the moon and back illuminates the way as soon as you enter the gallery. Baker breaks the walls of traditionalism by creating art with animal and humans skulls that are adorned with gold, beads and mosaics, taking inspiration from the Mexican Day of the Dead to create her beautifully bizarre world. She recently had her own solo exhibition ‘You Blow my Mind’ in Hang-Up last winter.


Hang-Up Gallery plans to have three more solo shows this year, along with group exhibitions of selected artists that stand out of the crowd for their unique work.
