The Underdog London gallery and live music studio may he closed for the foreseeable, but the team are still actively promoting and highlighting the work of artists they’ve exhibited. If you have a bit of cash stuck down a sofa somewhere and you’re looking for something unique to round off Pandemic-prompted redecoration, you might want to check out their web site.
Be warned – if you’re after original, unique and often stunning art, we’re sometimes talking a lot of cash, but that doesn’t stop anyone’s appreciation, right? However, the limited edition print prices are reasonable considering what’s in offer.
An eclectic arts and music bar with a welcoming environment for everyone to enjoy, Underdog London was first established back in 2007 on the Old Kent Road SE1, as an art gallery and live music studio. The ethos was to promote up and coming artists and creatives of all types and genres but mostly in the graphic art and rock music scenes, gig poster design, graffiti / street and outsider art.
The Underdog has since evolved in its current surroundings since 2011 in London Bridge, still staying true to its ethos of championing the outsider, but working and growing alongside some amazing, up and coming and well established artists and musicians.
Today the style of art they promote has grown to encompass a more finer, dark, surrealist and figurative offering. In normal times, the Underdog curates regular solo and group exhibitions with artist from the UK and all over the world, offering a unique, edgy and darker take than most galleries in London.
By mixing exceptional young talent with well seasoned artists in their disciplines, including Matt Adams, Chris Guest, Kieran Ingram, Sylwia Markis, Rosso, Saint Saturday and many more, they curate some of the most interesting exhibitions in London. They also sell original paintings, sculpture, fine art photography and very limited edition prints and curate artwork for residential and commercial environments.
Hopefully the Underdog – normally, hosts to some of the most interesting contemporary art exhibitions and events, a diverse range of live music gigs – and many places like it will be back in operation by the end of 2020. But in the meantime, check out their web site and at least treat yourself to looking at some great eye-catching art, – even if the prices of original canvas may be a trifle mind boggling for many of us!
