Well Hung was established in 2013 by Nawfal Salman, and has an in-house workshop offering bespoke picture framing and fine art printing.

Mr Salman spoke to about the artists in the current exhibition, and why championing figurative work is important to him.

Mr Salman also spoke to about the plethora of images we’re exposed to on a daily basis, especially through social media sites like Instagram.

He said ‘It is quite a difficult thing to be wowed by imagery these days.’

For this reason, the team at Well Hung like to meet artists, hear about their back story and see their work in person, to help them choose the right artists for their shows.

The ‘Just Human’ exhibition is running from the 19th of April to the 19th of May at Well Hung on Hoxton Street, and is free to attend.
