About

Hang-Up Gallery are pleased to present their upcoming group show ‘Wall To Wall’ – a modern exploration of street art’s diverse nature.Following the steady progression of the movement from the urban surface(s) to the white gallery walls, the show will feature eclectic mix of rare and unseen original works and limited editions from some of the finest and most exciting in the scene such as: Banksy, KAWS, Faile, Swoon, Futura, Matt Small, Shepard Fairey, David Choe and Ben Eine.The downstairs room will feature the gallery’s first Street Art installation by celebrated Italian artist RUN, who will be holding his first solo show at Hang-Up Gallery in June 2014.The main gallery space will recreate the organised chaos of a street artist’s studio to intensify the viewing experience. Expect to see paint splattered walls, empty spray paint cans, collage material cuttings and tools of the craft transporting the viewer deep into the creative process of how and where art is made.The exhibition will explore the multilayered aesthetic of street art to create a fuller appreciation of the art form. As the French Philosopher Henri Lefebvre once said, “The future of art is not artistic, but urban”

Artist

Banksy Banksy

Banksy was the first UK graffiti artist to successfully straddle the divide between street and fine art. Having initially built his reputation on a series of high profile public stunts, such as installing his own painting into the Tate Museum, Banksy has become a worldwide phenomenon and the leader of the street art movement. He started making editioned prints in 2002 and created over 50 in an 8 year period. His wit, humour and message have connected with a large international audience and he has become one of the hottest and most important living Contemporary artists in the world.  Originally from the UK, his identity has remained anonymous at all times and does not operate through the conventional gallery system, having no formal representation. All Banksy works sold through Hang-Up come with a COA. See our Banksy Guide and Banksy Editions Guide for more information.
