Free Art Thursday at Cultivate Vyner Street

A new type of gallery is occurring on Vyner Street: this one does not always abide by the First Thursday rule, it gives away free art sporadically, and it’s on a corner! (When you think about it, it is the only gallery is on Vyner Street which is on a corner). This must mean something special.

Almost 100 pieces were attached to walls and street furniture in random places outside the gallery. Spotting them was half the fun. Work from Raymond Salvatore Harmon, Lewis Bannister, Sean Worrall, Julieta Hernández Adame and Jo T Colvert were among them. Everything was yours for the price of nothing, although a hug was welcomed. Make sure you check out their facebook page for more events like this, they seem to happen sporadically.

And little yarn bomb appeared on a lamp post!



  1. smart wlbeog. What i’m saying is it. You’ve very much of knowledge about this problem, and so much enthusiasm. Additionally you figure out how to make people rally behind it, evidently from the responses.

  2. Hi Art Sleuth!

    I hope you don’t mind me mailing you on here… I really wanted to contact you, but couldn’t find an email address.

    My name is Vika Verb, I’m a young artist and I have my first solo exhibition next week (12th-18th) at East Gallery on Brick Lane. The exhibition is titled ‘From Womb to Womb’. It would be so much appreciated if you thought you might be able to mention my exhibition in your blog. Prehaps you might like to come and experience my work for yourself? I’ve attempted to explore the question of femininity within our contemporary culture. You can see some of my works on my website and my event listing on facebook is here!/events/267195006665871/

    My private view is on Thursday the 15th, 6-9. It would be great to see you at the gallery – either at the private view or anytime during the week. Some positive words would help so much – your coverage of the events you explore is always fun to read.

    It would be great to meet you in person sometime soon.

    Many thanks,
