Students and young artists are launching a new art gallery in Kentish Town to showcase local talent. 
 
The gallery, on Brecknock Road, will promote and showcase work by up-and-coming London creators. The project is a new venture for lighting and design company SKK, led by its creative directors Conrad Whale and Sam Shapin. 
 
“There aren’t really that many creative hubs or spaces directly around where the shop is, so we wanted to create somewhere that would draw in artists or writers,” Conrad said.

He hopes to hold regular events at the new gallery in future, such as book launches. 
 
SKK is collaborating with youth mental health charity the Lost Bond Project and streetwear brand Vented London for their launch event on July 21. 

The first exhibition, ‘London’s Paraphernalia’, will run until August 25 and will feature a variety of artists and styles. Some of the lino prints and photography will be available to buy.
