The Unit London Presents U

Mark your calendars because this September, The Unit London, an independent artist-led gallery, proudly presents U, a unique contemporary portrait exhibition led by an incomparable ensemble of six emerging artists from around the world.  The highly anticipated event celebrates The Unit London’s 1-year anniversary, and will unveil a new collection of artwork with bold, creative sparks.


Steeped in profoundly ingrained insights, the works of Jake Wood-Evans, Ivan AlifanHenrik UldalenMark Demsteader, Ryan Hewett, and SNIK will far surpass traditional portraiture and ultimately frame the psychological. Entwining visual perspectives, each artist conveys the modern notions of fractured identity, human intimacy and self-expression while engaging and guiding viewers through the collective exploration of individualism within today’s hyper-digital society.

From Jake Wood-Evans renowned combination of classical references flanking his signature ethereal, contemporary style to the erotic nuances of Ivan Alifan’s ambiguous milky renderings, the fragile beauty of U will surely ignite a lingering surreal ambiance. In addition to the otherworldly works of Henrik Uldalen speaking volumes within  juxtaposing states of limbo and longing, artists Mark Demsteader, Ryan Hewett and SNIK will also be shown. For more information, please contact the gallery directly.

Exhibition dates: September 19- October 18, 2014

Private viewing: September 18, 2014

Following in the great tradition of The Unit London’s trademark innovative approach to reaching out to new audiences, we are pleased to unveil a new introductory short film for U.

Directed by Chas Appeti, written and produced by Jonny Burt and Joe Kennedy.
