I was lucky to catch the last day of Leontia Gallery’s witty and thought-provoking Consume pop-up exhibition in Hoxton this week. While its primary format is its online presence, Leontia Gallery also stages a series of temporary pop-up spaces throughout London where they showcase the work of exciting, emerging international artists such as Rococo Wonderland, urban artist Schoony, Magnus Gjoen, Jean-Luc Almond, and Carne Griffiths, who are working in unique formats and unexpected use of materials.
Leontia Reilly explains; “The gallery is not a gallery in the traditional sense as it exists online, the show’s locations are ephemeral; each exhibition and location is curated around a theme. It is a natural fit for this exhibition ‘Consume’ to be in the heart of Hoxton, a canvas for street artists.”
“Every piece of artwork on display has a strong concept and technique, which creates beautiful visual pieces to be enjoyed by everyone from art critics to collectors and those who’ve never visited an art gallery before. We have purposely selected a range of pieces for everyone’s budget £300 through to £4000, to encourage the existing and new enthusiasts to be at the forefront of the pioneering new movement of contemporary art.”
