Pick Of The Week
The beautiful hand embellished print is part of the aquatic series released only last year and has nearly sold out. Apex Diamond Dust is skilfully covered in diamond dust, which gives a special spark to the already astonishing artwork.
With only a few left, you might want to snap one up before they go!
The elegant yet controversial giclee print is a limited edition of only 30, that is sure to sell out quickly. Don't miss the chance to get your exclusive edition before they go.
Hang-Up Gallery is delighted to introduce the launch of a new series of exhibitions entitled ‘Hang-Up Collections’. Expect to see key works from leading international urban and contemporary artists alongside super-fresh releases and exciting rare finds from the Hang-Up artist roster. Adopting a slightly unconventional approach to the traditional exhibition format, new work will be added and removed throughout the exhibition duration allowing it to evolve and change over the weeks. Whether it’s straight from the artist’s studio, a unique and rare piece from Banksy or from the gallery’s own private collection, Hang-Up Collections will promise to bring you something new, different and exciting each time you visit.
Today is not so ordinary Friday - we just reached 10 000 followers!

It has been an eventful and exciting journey for us so far. We have been through trials and errors, always moving forward with a fantastic team that work hard and always aim to be ahead of the game. We will continue to strive to share the freshest and most creative eyes and soul- feeding art from around the world as we did when we only had a few followers and look forward to what the future holds!
After exploring the concrete jungle, (covered on our blog two weeks ago), we now take a closer look at faces, adorning the city walls around the world. Leading off this week is LA -based El Mac, whose new Toronto representational monochrome portrait strikes with its photorealistic features and careful perfectionist repeating contour lines. Other notable works come from Faith47 in Warwick, South Africa, Swoon and Phlegm in Djerba, Tunisia, Fikos Antonios in Ibiza, Spain, Borondo and Fintan Magee in Atlanta and Alexis Diaz- Tunisia.
It is nearly 'Hang-Up Collections-Volume 1' launch time, so instead of writing a long post on what the new show stands for, we have taken a rather different approach. We have let two of the participating artists - A.CE London and Joe Webb to have a say on how they find the concept of the exhibition and what the challenges are to be part of such a diverse collection.
Private Turkish Museum Hosts First Ever Show Dedicated To Graffiti with Works by Futura, Logan Hicks, Cope 2, Herakut, Tilt
'Graffiti is more than painting gray walls. Your life might change if you pass in front of something painted on a wall'... This is how curator Roxane Ayral sees the rationale behind the first ever graffiti and street museum exhibition in Istanbul, Turkey. Futura, Logan Hicks, Cope2, Herakut, Tilt, C215, Gaia, Evol, Martha Cooper are just a few of the prominent participants in the show, which opened yesterday and will be on view till the 5th October. We find it quite interesting, and at the same time really valuable,that a museum, with traditional permanent collections on Orientalist Paintings and Anatolian Weights and Measures, reaches beyond the traditionalism, recognises the importance and bridges the gap, bringing the contemporary fine aspect of the art practice.
