somewhereto_ in association with Project Platform are launching an illustration pop-gallery called ‘Pen&Ink’ at the One By One store in Soho, private viewing this Friday 4 April 2014, 7pm – 10pm.
Providing a unique platform combining fashion, design and illustration culture, ‘Pen&Ink’ highlights the young emerging talent making shapes on the art scene today, giving them the opportunity to showcase their expressive ideas in unusual pop-up spaces. Working in partnership with somewhereto_, a UK legacy project funded by a £7m injection from The Big Lottery, offers a free service to help young people aged 16 – 25 access unused spaces to facilitate and support creative projects.
Curated by Laura Frood and Misha Meghna aka Project Platform, ‘Pen&Ink’ will see a collection of eight artists exhibit and sell their work over three days, engaging with customers with a back drop of live music performed by new kids on the block ‘DOPExBROKE, a London based collective of minds, body and soul creating an organic sound that resonates with the vibrations of the human anatomy.
News artists such as Ashton Springer, Mitiki Suri, Forrest Hu, Matt Fern, Flo Main, Jordan Pryke, Sam Hugh and Stephanie Kane will offer a visual inebriation that will take you on a lucid expedition.
