Hang-Up is a London based contemporary art gallery located in the vibrant and bohemian neighbourhood of Stoke Newington. The gallery represents both young artists at the early stages of their careers alongside established names from the art world and seeks to show artists whom in some way break the mould from the traditional, pushing the boundaries either in terms of their work, their message or both.

The Hang-Up  Christmas Exhibition launches in two weeks and all works will be under £500, including exclusive new releases and unseen works from both gallery artists, perfect for those looking for a unique Christmas gift or just looking to treat themselves.

Some of the artists who will be featured are  Joe Webb, Mark Powell, Magnus Gjoen, Dave White, Lauren Baker, Mason Storm Russell Marshall, and the eponymous Shepard Fairey.

Head along to their private view on 5th Dec for a first peak.
