Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space. The new space, established through the partnership of Martin J Tickner and Sean McLusky and Fruitmachine founders, Martin Bell & Wai Hung Young breaks fresh ground for the open-source, non-conformist curatorial approach Tickner and McLusky employed at their (rightly) notorious MEN Gallery, in Shoreditch.Housed in a pair of newly renovated Georgian houses in the grounds of Whitechapel Hospital, GALLERY 46 is set over 3 floors and 8 rooms and is a kaleidoscopic addition to Whitechapel’s burgeoning gallery scene and close by its artistic...→

Legendary US graffiti artist Sherpard Fairey completed the wall on Ebor Street – opposite Shoreditch House to coincide with his show Obey “Sound & Vision” show at StolenSpace Gallery.
The Sound & Vision show is Shepard Fairey’s first UK show in five years and features a range on new material including mixed media paintings on canvas, works on paper, retired stencils collages, rubylith cuts, and as well as serigraphs on wood, metal and paper.
The wall replaces the piece produced by FLIP earlier in the year and is keeping the calibre of creative collaborations at a peak.
**About the Artist:**
Shepard Fairey has been on a meteoric rise over the past five years. In 2008, his ‘HOPE’ portrait of then Democratic candidate, Barack Obama, became an internationally recognised emblem of the campaign and a symbol of political change for many. In 2009, Fairey’s Obama portrait was inducted into the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery as the official presidential portrait.
Since last exhibiting in London, Fairey has continued to progress with his art and with a 20 Year Retrospective museum exhibition that began at the ICA, Boston in 2009 and continued to the Warhol Museum and Contemporary Art Centre in Cincinnati. In 2011, he was commissioned by TIME Magazine to design his second cover for the magazine.
