Dog Days: Summer's Hottest Artists at Hang-Up Gallery

July 20, 2015
Bob Lansroth loves to explore the boundless diversity of artists and the various ways in which they strive to escape the quotidian life. It is through the creative force within us that we must attempt to connect with one another and share our ideas with the world. Writing for Widewalls, Bob Lansroth makes an effort to bring the world of art to as many people as possible. “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”

This season’s most intriguing group show from the Hang-Up Gallery, comes under the name of Dog Days. They are proud to feature 16 of their leading contemporary and urban artists, who will showcase their work in joined forces for this group exhibition. The freshly created artworks for this show will include those of the British duo named Connor Brothers, Dutch collaborative Crail Moansburg, Spanish street artist David de la Mano and Italian street artist RUN, alongside contemporary London based artists Dave White, Delphine Lebourgeois, David Schienmann, Lauren Baker, Magnus Gjoen, Mark Powell and Rosie Emerson. The exhibition will also feature original works by collage artists Oddly Head and Joe Webb, including the latest print releases from the internationally acclaimed Harland Miller and Takashi Murakami.

David de la Mano – Limited Edition Release

Another unique part of this noteworthy event will be the premier publishing of a limited edition release, produced by the acclaimed street artist David de la Mano. Hang-Up Gallery was thrilled to team up with the esteemed, Brixton based, Hardground Printmakers to release the amazing El Hoyo. Based on one of the most popular originals, the meticulously crafted two color screen print will be released on the opening night of the exhibition. Keep in mind, this limited edition comes in 50 pieces, so make sure you grab yours in time.

The Dog Days Aren’t Over

Assemblage of artists, such as this one, promises an inspiring and engaging show. From the intricate works of RUN, whose level of detail and complexity is rarely seen in street art today, to handmade collages of Joe Webb, in which he depicts surreal narratives with a comical and cynical take on the modern world, this group exhibition is a must-see. And if all of those enticing names aren’t enough to spark your interest, maybe this is – namely, Hang-Up Gallery will be giving away a handful of the limited edition prints by one of the major exhibiting artists at the launch night. All you have to do is speak with the gallery staff on the night of the event, for the details. A pretty sweet deal, don’t you think?
