Last week celebrated the launch of Hang-Up's highly anticipated summer Exhibition 'Dog Days' - displaying an eclectic mix of 16 of the gallery's hottest artists. A huge thank you to everyone who came down to the show and made it an incredible success. Here's a preview of the evening, captured by our fine photographer Chuck Noble.

So that we didn't overload you with all the juicy information about our Dog Days artists at once, we thought we'd treat you to another round of questions. This time we have Dutch collective Crail Moansburg, Magnus Gjoen, Rosie Emerson and Spanish street artist David De La Mano to stir up your curiosity for the exhibition. Dog Days will be opening on the 23rd so don't forget to RSVP for an evening of exclusive Hang-Up vodka designed by Crail Moansburg and resident DJ Keiran on the decks.. What more could you want from a Thursday night!

Joe Webb's second solo show with Hang-Up is coming to an end and what an amazing show it has been! Sweet Armageddon presented a selection of collages depicting Joe's characteristically witty, vintage scenes, however this time the works were larger, emphasising their ingenious imagery. The show also included painting 'Wish You Were Here' and limited edition print 'Cloud Eaters' displaying Joe's skills in multi mediums. With only one week left and only a small selection of works still available, we thought we would give you a round up of the exhibition.
Get to know the artists: Dave White, Mark Powell, Joe Webb, Delphine Lebourgeois, Oddly Head and Lauren Baker

We are extremely excited for our forthcoming Summer exhibition Dog Days, which will see brand new works from some of our favourite Hang-Up artists. With a multi layered original collage from Oddly Head, the amazing new print release from David De La Mano and Murakami's Homage To Mono Pink, which for me epitomises the summer vibes flying around at the moment, these works are just some of what we have in store for you. In anticipation of the show we thought we'd give you the chance to get to know some of the artists a little better and have a sneak peak at what they have been working on...

This Friday we popped down to HENI publishers to check out the launch of Street Art, Book Art by renowned curator Ingrid Beazley. Ingrid started the Dulwich Outdoor Gallery along with street artist Stik, which saw a selection of street artists draw inspiration from the Baroque masters to create wall murals around the area. The book celebrates the work of 15 of these artists, including two of our awesome affiliates RUN and Dscreet. All the artists were given five blank covers of the book to put their mark on, with the results being exhibited at HENI in Soho. In anticipation of the launch we managed to chat to Ingrid to discuss how the project began and the goals it has achieved so far.

Street artist David De La Mano took a little pit stop in London this week whilst he's been travelling around Europe spreading his silhouetted shapes on many a wall. Not only did David create another fantastical mural during his trip, brightening up Loughborough street down in Brixton, but he also embarked on a brand new collaboration with the talented Johnathan from Hardground Printmakers. With out giving too much away before the official release of the print on the 16th July, we thought we'd give you a little taster of what's been going on and what other great things are to come...

Our yearning for the glamorous allure of the vintage hollywood era has definitely grown since seeing the incredible collages by artist Oddly Head. His recent work is made up of multi layers of vintage imagery to create the effect of a three dimensional ball of nostalgic envy. We are really happy to begin working with him and thought we should properly introduce him to you all by getting him to open up about his fantastic collages...

Space Invader has treated us to another invasion in his home town Paris, amounting to his 1139th in the city... pretty impressive eh! This latest mosaic forms the giant character taken from the Metroid series in his iconic pixilated style. The piece comes straight after his month long invasion of Hong Kong for his 'Wipe Out' exhibition. Having invaded 64 cities over 30 countries where will be his next target? We've put together a little collection of his works to celebrate his latest conquest!
