PoptArt was founded in 2015 by Karel Kingsley. Passionate about art, people and space, the curators of PoptArt have collaborated with a number of artists to bring together the online art community both in London and abroad.
PoptArt operates a pop-up gallery that exhibits London artists while utilising various unique, dormant or vibrant spaces across London. Changing location aims to extend artist networks while attracting local audiences. The main purpose of the events is to share artwork and facilitate networking between artists and art enthusiasts.
The PoptArt atmosphere focuses on a friendly and laid back environment where the artists can enjoy themselves alongside the public, whilst explaining the origins and technique of their work.
Whether you are an emerging, graduate or local artist, PoptArt employs an 'open-door' policy for the open mind and various mediums of visual art.
