Let’s celebrate!

Posted by on Nov 27, 2014 in News | Comments Off on Let’s celebrate!

Cafe Art does not usually need a good reason to start a celebration when it comes to the artists and photographers! Well this time it is for a very special occasion. Not only to celebrate our new 'base' at Qbic Hotel in Whitechapel, but also to showcase the winning photographs from this year's contest in a special exhibition in Qbic's restaurant. It was also to acknowledge our sincere gratitude to Carter Wong Design who has been responsible for the layout and design of all our three calendars. And they did them for free! We commissioned one of the artists, Tagzee, to produce his iconic 'metallic-like' design of their logo as a token of appreciation. A very special...

The Recovery Cafe officially opens!

Posted by on Nov 10, 2014 in News | Comments Off on The Recovery Cafe officially opens!

For all you art and coffee lovers out there, you may recall that we were kindly contacted by The Recovery Cafe to add a splash of colour to their bare walls by hanging up some beautiful works drawn by a selection of artists representing different homelessness organisations in London. Well, they had their official opening last Friday (7/11), and we are pleased that we were able to bring along two of the contributing artists - Barry and Reza.

London in 7 days!

Posted by on Nov 3, 2014 in News | Comments Off on London in 7 days!

This is what happens when you leave two pieces of beautiful 'blank' canvases with only black outlines of well-known London landmarks and boxes of crayons to hundreds of Londoners and visitors during our Arts Market Week. Over a period of 7 days, they can't but help themselves by picking up a crayon and unleashed their creative juices, to join in the spirit of the 'arts for all' atmosphere at the pods. Thank you to our Arts Market artist, David Tovey, who drew the London outline for both canvases. And to all Londoners and visitors to this great city who took part and shared their creativity with...
