How come we have vintage Matisse and Picasso lithographs, Street Art by Pure Evil and Shepard Fairey, Pop Art by Peter Blake and Sex Pistols artwork by Jamie Reid with abstract works by the likes of Iain Robertson and Willard Boepple?

This Ain't No Art Shop

Posted by The Art Hound on

A good Art Gallery is a not a just shop to buy house decorations. A Gallery is cultural space. A place to champion creativity, thoughts, ideas both new and old, and to engage with art and its commentary on the world.

The Art Hound Gallery began back in 2012, when the team were based on the King’s Road in Fulham, London. Having sold online, to celebrity private clients, to the trade and the UK’s top art fairs - it was time to open a permanent gallery space to showcase our stock direct to the public. By this point - our team had slowly migrated up the M11 and the opportunity of a beautiful converted barn in Burwash Manor, just outside of Cambridge City centre presented itself.
