Cluster Edition III: Illustration Pop-Up in Dalston

SEEN always thinks that the great thing about living and working in London is the sheer diversity of talent on show here. So it is with great delight that we shall be visiting the Cluster pop-up at the 1963 gallery space in the beating heart of creative Dalston.

Cluster is a collaborative pop-up initiative from East London, whose brief is to represent undiscovered talent who are unafraid of being innovative, different and active. For their third showcase, Cluster have selected from amongst students, the newly graduated, and artists both amateur and professional and ‘clustered’ them in 1963’s underground alternative space.

Black and white drawings, abstract art, realism, watercolours, vibrant prints and toys are promised. SEEN will be visiting tomorrow, in a state of high anticipation! See you there.

The pop-up will run from the 16th to the 22nd of December, every day, and will be open from 12 noon to 7pm.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
