Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from Hang-Up!
When first introduced to Johnathan Reiner’s works, the words that come to mind are contradiction, juxtaposition and fascination. There is, however, nothing contradictory in the process of creating, says Reiner. There is a space there, where my mind just goes blank and I am focused on the process, I am on a wavelength which is clear of any intrusive thoughts, expectations, nagging emotions or any highs or lows. It’s not an introspective process because I am not absorbed in myself or withdrawn. It is an active process, which extends from me to the drawing board or the paper or the print-bed and is void of noise. I always feel charged after a few hours of creative work. Below is a short visual narrative and an overview of the feelings, emotions and creative flair that led Johnathan Reiner to the most extraordinary path- that of making artworks.
This Friday saw the launch of our highly anticipated Xmas Show, which featured a vast array of new releases, rare or unseen artworks from the Hang-Up artist roster. Shepard Fairey, Kate Gibb, David Scheinmann, Joe Webb, Mark Powell, Dave White, Pure Evil, Charming Baker, were some of the many that adorned our gallery walls, bringing festivity and cheer to all, just on time for Christmas. Below is a brief visual narrative of the night - thanks to all who braved the cold and came to share that moment with us!
Today marks the end of Hang-Up Collections - Volume I. After 15 weeks of constant new art in and out, we can safely say that the rotating concept has had a profound effect on the physical gallery space. We did everything to not disappoint and deliver what we promised, providing fresh artworks from gallery artists and world known names on a weekly basis. And to quote Carla Nizzola (Hang-Up Gallery manager) 'that exhibit received an overwhelming response from visitors, artists and collectors'. Below is a brief visual retrospection of the show, featuring last's month window displays, curation in process shots and separate clusters of works on display throughout those weeks. Hang-Up Collections will continue to expand and develop into the New Year with a Volume II. We are very excited to show you what’s up our sleeve, so stay tuned!

The Project that Found a New Way to Share Same Urban Environment with Different Generations - Outings
The modern cityscape is a visually cluttered space, full of government signage, billboards and sporadically public mural or unsolicited street art. Therefore, it is not surprising that a lot of art goes unnoticed or just categorised as 'urban noise' and not important by passersby. This is where The Outings Project comes to challenge all that. Set up as a 'global participatory' one, the project concentrates on the way different people respond to images, which are taken out of their normal logical white walls institutionalised context and pasted up in random public spaces.
