Master of the biro drawing Mark Powell returns to Hang-Up Gallery in March with his new solo show Anthropology. The exhibition will feature an exclusive collection of original pen and ink drawings, as well as a selection of limited edition print releases in collaboration with London’s prestigious publisher Jealous Gallery.
Known internationally for his beautifully intricate biro drawings of the elderly and endangered species executed on found material, Powell is back with a fresh body of work that visually documents his recent travels from across the globe. By deeply immersing himself in new cultures and experiences Powell has expanded his visual vocabulary.
For the first time, Hang-Up will be revealing the artists new direction of still life objects. Vintage cameras, used typewriters and discarded leather boots hint at the untold stories of their forgotten owners, and remind us of the inevitability of time’s passing.
Hibernate is an amazing selection of works from some of Hang-Up‘s favourite urban and contemporary artists.
With brand new limited edition prints and original artworks from the likes of Mark Powell, Pure Evil, Delphine Lebourgeois and Joe Webb as well as sought after collectors pieces from Takashi Murakami, Banksy and Invader.
We included below some of the pieces from the show

‘So It Goes…’ features new work from the artist’s notorious and much sought after Pulp Fiction series, which explores the porous boundary between reality and fiction. The duo have created an exclusive collection of original hand painted Pulp Fiction paperbacks, original canvas works and hand painted limited editions that reflect their interest in how our understanding of the world is formed by the narratives we tell about it.
Following a series of sell out exhibitions from Los Angeles to Sydney, these internationally acclaimed artists are back in London with not only a new body of work, but a new cause – the foundation on an NGO in association with the artists’ friends and collaborators Pussy Riot. The new show will combine reality and fiction with an installation detailing their experiences in ‘The Jungle’ refugee camp in Calais. Hang-Up will be releasing a third limited edition charity print to raise further funds to build additional shelters when they return to The Jungle with Pussy Riot in December.
