The Unruly Gallery is a revolutionary concept that’s taking form in the world of Art and Culture. Founded by artist Niels Shoe Meulman, it is a new online gallery that looks at art from a new perspective. It’s attention is focused on the individual artists instead of general artistic movements or schools of thought. In doing so, Meulman has created a unique selection of pieces some of which are traditional wall hangings but also silk scarves, graphic T-shirts and exquisite abstract pieces.
Philosophy: “We like to look at life from different angles and turn things around. There is no truth. There is no untruth. Only everything in between. We’re untying the old perspective…”
So if you are an art enthusiast or just a casual admirer, you can give them a visit next time you are in London or just pop over to their site’s web gallery www.unrulygallery.com/products and maybe order something.
