Hang-Up Gallery are highly excited to announce they will be participating in this year's Moniker Art Fair. The team will be heading down to East London’s Old Truman Brewery to display brand new collections from artists Mark Powell, Joe Webb, Magnus Gjoen and Lauren Baker.

Each artist will bring something new to the table, pushing their practices further and promising something fresh, cuttingedge and exciting. Off the back of last month’s sellout show ‘Drawing on History’ at Hang-Up Gallery, biro artist Mark Powell will be pushing the boundaries with his latest body of work created specially for Moniker. Expect to see largescale drawings on antique maps and vintage documents to wow the crowds yet again. In the Hang-Up booth you will also see the current collection of quirky retro collages from Joe Webb alongside detailed oil paintings, a new and exciting direction for the artist. Hang-Up will also be showcasing some fantastic original works by Magnus Gjoen. His delicate images of beauty and death will be enhanced with light-boxes and gold leaf. The gallery will welcome new artist Lauren Baker, exhibiting her innovative neon sculptures alongside a show-stopping 6ft infinity coffin.

Hang-Up will be collaborating with Jealous Gallery to produce and release an exclusive limited edition screen print by Mark Powell. The artist will be present at Moniker on Saturday 18 October to sign each print.

Moniker Art Fair returns for its fourth year, having firmly established itself as London’s premiere event for contemporary art with its roots embedded in urban culture. This year sees the fair take another ground-breaking step by venue-sharing with London’s leading artist-led fair – The Other Art Fair – in what will be a showcase of independent and established talent all under one roof in East London’s iconic Old Truman Brewery. The new partnership emphasizes both fairs formidable reputations for showcasing artists operating under the radar of the traditional art establishment.

Private View: Thursday 17 Oct 6-9pm | Open to public: Fri 18 & Sat 19 11am-7pm, Sun 20 11am-6pm.
