Unit London is an artist-led gallery that presents work by an international selection of artists. Established in 2013 by fellow painters and childhood friends Joe Kennedy and Jonny Burt, the gallery initially served as a pop-up space to show their own paintings. Guided by the principles of equity, innovation, and accessibility, the pair have gathered an international roster of contemporary artists, now shown in a permanent multi-storey space in Mayfair.Read More
The gallery’s flagship location is also complemented by The Stables, an additional exhibition and event venue space in Covent Garden.
Unit London Artists
Intended to function as a global artistic platform, Unit London represents an international array of both emerging and established contemporary artists.
Among them are a large number of U.K. artists, including Mr. Jago, whose vibrant canvases are a hybrid combination of abstract expression and graffiti-inspired mark-making; David Spriggs, who is internationally renowned for his large-scale installations that layer transparent images into ghostly three-dimensional sculptures; and Henry Hudson, who creates intricate paintings using thick impasto made with heated plasticine and petroleum jelly.
Unit London also represents artists like Oh de Laval, a Polish artist who paints humorous, hedonistic worlds with an expressive quality that belies their deep psychological undertones; South African-born artist Ryan Hewett, the gallery’s inaugural exhibitor, who paints portraits and landscapes characterised by balanced compositions of organic and geometric forms; New York-based Chinese artist Ziping Wang, who paints abstracted visions of items from her childhood memories; and American artist Mauro Martinez, who satirically riffs on imagery drawn from internet culture.
Unit London Exhibitions
Making its culturally diverse roster accessible to a broad audience, Unit London presents a programme of thematic group and solo exhibitions both in the gallery’s physical spaces and through its online exhibitions programme, Platform. Unit London also supports emerging contemporary artists, hosting exhibitions like Unite Uncovers in 2019, which showcased the work of four young painters. In place of art fair appearances, the gallery dedicates the promotion of its artists to its social media platforms.
You Gave Me Paradise, Will Martyr's third solo exhibition with Unit London, explores therelationship between memories, people and their environments, examininghow our surroundings impact our emotional states, as well as ourdesires.
