Found in the heart of Bloomsbury, and only minutes away from the British Museum and the National Gallery, Bloomsbury Gallery is at the centre of one of the world’s most important art capitals. It was built around 1850, and is one of the preserved Georgian listed grade II buildings in the Centre of London. The gallery focuses on small scale industry design, fashion, photography, and Chinese traditional printing and calligraphy.
Well known artist Qu Lei Lei’s stunning solo exhibition is currently being displayed in the gallery until 26th November 2016. The paintings shown below are only a taste of his work. Click here to find out more about his wonderful creations.
Moving on to December, Bloomsbury Gallery will host a three-day pop-up event in celebration of the richness of silks from the East. From Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th December, Bloomsbury Gallery will be transformed into a silk lover’s club with three days of boutique shopping, Chinese classic film screenings, live violin performances, silk painting workshops, and Chinese street food and cocktails, showcasing the best of oriental silk culture and the tastiest of Chinese home cooking. Bringing back the golden age of Chinoiserie, the pop-up silk shop will feature traditional hand-embroidered silk garments with modern twists, hand-embroidered silk fabrics featuring traditional Chinese motifs, contemporary silk fabrics and accessories, as well as silk brush paintings and various artworks.Click here for tickets
