All the world’s a stage, and every October all the players make their entrances on the London art scene. From the galleries who launch their newest exhibitions to auction houses hammering down on their latest prized artworks to numerous weekend long art fairs; in this time the capital becomes the undisputed centre of the art world.
The launch night for Reem Gallery’s inaugural London show brought together art admirers, passers-by, collectors and artists into one merry and vibrant evening. Being surrounded by more traditional art dealers, our selection of carefully curated artists has been very well received as a welcome addition to the Mayfair and St. James area. It seems deep down there is a rebel in all of us.
Around the corner at Sotheby’s auction house, Banksy’s ‘Girl with Balloon’ sold for just over £1 million pounds and then was instantly shredded infront of aghast onlookers! An historic event for sure that was broadcast globally across news channels. A timely reminder too that despite its infancy, the street art movement is one of the most talked about genres in the world today and will no doubt have a lasting legacy.
You can catch Reem Gallery’s ‘REBEL’ exhibition until October 30th at Mason’s Yard, St. James’s in London.
