On show: June 23rd to June 27th 2011
New Location: 65 Hanbury Street. East London.

London Miles Gallery is proud to announce an exhibition featuring all Uk artists, from street artists Alex Young and Insa, to incredible digital painter Tom Bagshaw. Each artist was teamed up with a particular vice or guilty pleasure at random and are required to create a piece of art inspired by that vice. The outcome has been impressive and to say the least, we are already addicted to this emerging group of UK talent.
Vice is a practice or a habit considered immoral, depraved, and/or degrading in the associated society. In more minor usage, vice can refer to a fault, a defect, an infirmity, or merely a bad habit. Synonyms for vice include fault, depravity, sin, iniquity, wickedness, and corruption.

Featured Artists:

INSA, Alex Young, David Marsh, Tom Bagshaw, Xue Wang, Craww, Carne Griffiths, Mr Gauky, Michael Forbes, Ruben Ireland, Mr Penfold

and more to be confirmed

Old Boots – new website..

It was a great evening at the launch of Old Boots and nice to meet up with some of the artists participating in the show – big thanks to those of you who made it down through the rain to attend.  Was blown away by the work on show, great pieces from all artists & especially liked the glass pieces produced by Gonny Van Hulst, Stuart McApine Miller’s translucent oils on canvas and Pam Glew’s Innuit piece.  Big thanks to the buyer of my Old Boots light box yesterday, and for those who picked up Giclee prints of the boots and other work.

Have also been doing a spring clean of the website today as well – organising available works and putting some new pieces for sale through this site. 2 new sections have been added and I’d be really grateful if you could have a browse and let me know what you think.
