Presenting an exciting new showcase of exclusive works, Nelly Duff Gallery is excited to invite you to follow us down the rabbit hole into a world of nonconformity, subversion and eccentricity created by Soozy Lipsey. ‘Take A F-ing Seat’ will showcase a treasure trove of never before seen original works and exclusive limited edition prints that are sure to intrigue and amuse, all accompanied by a live DJ and refreshing drinks from London Fields Brewery and Quello.

There a few artists who are further up Nelly Duff’s street than artist, antiques stylist and all-around eccentric Soozy Lipsey, who’s limited editions have graced our walls to our delight over the last several years. East London’s original urban art gallery, Nelly Duff has been exhibiting the very best of street, tattoo and graphic art from Columbia Road since 2006. The gallery passionately advocates the development of high quality, hand-made editions; encouraging traditional crafts and age-old techniques, and is proud to present Soozy Lipsey’s work as exemplary testimony to these values.

Renegade antique enthusiast and explorer of the unmapped Soozy Lipsey has commandeered Nelly Duff’s back room in the first of Nelly Duff’s 2018 exhibitions. Her intricate subversion of exotic heirlooms and time-worn objets d’art have enchanted a band of devoted followers including London institution Soho House. Prepare yourself to be enchanted by her chromatically chaotic metamorphosis of miscellanea, from botanical drawings to the artist’s own mouth, nothing is safe from Lipsey’s brush.

Journey to Columbia Road on July 26th  from 6 – 9.30pm for the Private View of this collection of unique works from London’s most established antique hedonist. ‘Take A F***ing Seat’ will be on display from July 27th – August 5th 2018.
