I never know quite what to expect with both exhibitions or events, so I was pleasantly surprised by the blogger launch party at the LUMAS gallery. Located on south Milton street amongst designer stores, LUMAS is a surprisingly accessible art gallery focusing on contemporary photography. While there is plenty of craft and artistry in the showcased work, it is lacking in the pomp and pretension I had feared. Instead, themes of vivid colour, exploration, glamour and beauty were core to most of the pieces.
The event was to launch their ART NOW range, which are sets of postcard sized prints retailing at xx. These are bold and whimsical, and I can see them becoming popular with those looking for a bit of flair in their homes. LUMAS were kind enough to gift attendees one of these miniatures each out of an armadillo, pug and clones kissing. Since I have a strong dislike or pugs and a bit of love for Star Wars, you can guess which I picked!
If you like the sound of ART NOW you can explore the collection online here or visit the gallery at 57 South Molton Street, London W1K 5SJ,
