Having resurrected what was Hackney Wick’s first exhibition space in Queens yard, Prompt>Gallery_ presents it’s debut show ‘Meanwhile Back In The Wick’ which previews on the 14th November, on the 5th floor of Mother Studios.
To reinforce the locations reputation of being one of the most exciting and creative artist communities in the whole of Europe, we are delighted to feature the work of three Wick based artists, Aida, John Atherton and OKO. Aida and John Atherton left the hustle and bustle of Brick Lane in 2008 in search of a more affordable and less saturated solace, to live and work.
Since then, they have progressed individually, with Aida growing as a seminal printmaker and Atherton establishing his business in the area as well as developing his creative practice. OKO uses the world as her canvas; she has been a permanent fixture in the street art revolution since 2005, traveling extensively, skating or painting her intricately drawn work. Dubbed a ‘National Treasure’ in Croatia and working with clients such as Adidas, we are delighted that she has decided to call Hackney Wick her new home.
Exhibition opening, 14/11/14 from 7pm until 10pm
