Moniker Art Fair 2014
Mark Powell's Junkyard Games
After last year’s successful participation, Hang-Up returns with East London artist Mark Powell to debut his exclusive new collection. Mark has returned to painting after many years to reveal a more personal, experimental insight to his work.
Pick of The Week
As many of Micallef's work, Happy Fucked Up Nuclear Girl reflects the artist's interest for our generation's approach with consumerism and indulgence. HFUNG is now hanging on the gallery's wall, don't miss your chance to see it in the flesh!
We are proud to announce the release of HENRY V the new original oil on canvas by talented artist Mason Storm. This stunning oil on canvas is framed in a beautiful gilded frame and now on display at Hang-Up Collections:Volume1.
Once more Storm challenges us with his controversial yet perfectly executed artworks.
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.
Hang-Up Gallery will be back at Moniker Art Fair 2014 with a cutting-edge installation entitled 'Junkyard Games' featuring exclusive new works by talented and visionary artist Mark Powell. 16 - 19 October 2014 | The Truman Brewery | London E1 6QR
Paint is Power with Borondo, M-City, David de la Mano, Faile, Phlegm, Etam Cru, Mobstr, Lauren Baker
This week's art roundup takes a slight 'out of cityscape' turn. Even though, many of the walls are solicited and painted with permission, as part of big festivals, we found a few examples of unsolicited works that appeared in the local environment. And we love it. Spaniad Borondo leads off with this impressive, masterfully painted wall for the 2014 edition of Nuart Festival in Stavanger, Norway. Close-up images, all via Nuart, below. Other notable pieces come from M-City in Vilnius, Lithuania, David de la Mano in Djerba, Tunisia, Phlegm in London, Etam Cru in Boras (Sweden) and Stavanger (Norway), Faile in Brooklyn, USA, Mobstr -London and Lauren Baker in Rovinj, Croatia.
'How do you find the concept of the Collections?' 'Entertaining, as good art should be.' (David Scheinmann) David de la Mano and David Scheinmann, with works featured in the Hang-Up Collections, are now sharing with us what inspires them on a daily basis, the rational behind their medium of choice and how does the concept of a rotating exhibition feels.

Leading off is Faith47 and her 'Preciousness of the Hunt' in downtown LA. It has been a very busy season for Faith, delivering breath-taking walls in Durban, London, Djerba, Portland but this new work stays in our hearts. See below for close-up, more detailed shots. Other worthy pieces come from Os Gemeos in Vancouver, Canada, Saner in Perth, Australia, Borondo in Atlanta, USA, El Mac in Toronto, Canada, Logan Hicks in Istanbul, Turkey, David de la Mano, Stinkfish and ROA in Djerba for the Djerbahood Project, Tunisia and Aida in London.
