Nelly Duff present Gaia's ‘A Show of Hands’ London Exhibition

East London gallery Nelly Duff is proud to present the premier solo UK exhibition of one of the most profound social muralists of recent years.

Baltimore born Gaia is a rare man of both extraordinary artistry, and social conscience. Over the past 7 years, the mighty force of Gaia’s unique style has been showcased across large scale urban walls worldwide, attempting to aid positive social development by making an active impact on the surrounding community.

On April 11th, the stage will be set at The Ravenscroft Public House, a one time social hub, now a forgotten relic of the failures of social housing. It is here that Nelly Duff will introduce ‘Show of Hands’, an exhibition of original drawings. Every delicately rendered finger and sensitively shaded knuckle, highlights the anonymous struggle of each subject, weaving a complex modern narrative of urban poverty comparable to the emotive anatomical etchings of past masters.

‘Each set of hands is a reminder that while there is a common humanity within all of us, that ultimately our differences and experiences in a supposedly global world can never be universally reconciled.’ – Gaia.

Preview 11th April, 6- 9pm (RSVP: )
Exhibition runs from 11th April - 18th April.
The Ravenscroft — 4 Ravenscroft St - London - E2 7QG
