Curious Duke Gallery began in September 2011 as a pop up, in addition to an online gallery, but now stands as a fully fledged ‘anti-gallery’. Founded by 27 year old Eleni Duke, dubbed the Duchess of Whitecross Street, the business has grown exponentially to great acclaim having won second place in Smarta 100 Micro Business Awards 2013. Curious Duke Gallery is also the only space in London to specialise in urban and surreal art works from new artists. You will find obscure methods of art from laser cut vintage saws depicting childhood scenes, to Bic biro drawings on antique documents nestling between bright mixed media paintings of native American inspired women.
The gallery is a 9 minute walk from Old Street and Barbican stations.
Buses: The 243 stops at Old Street and the 55 and 153 stop close by on Clerkenwell Road.
