Tucked away off the steep slope of Old Bailey Street, this boutique gallery is a breath of fresh air when it comes to sharing creative talents from Southeast Asia. Showcasing an eclectic collection of sculptures, paintings, textiles and prints, including those by renowned Hong Kong experimental artist Frog King, Chancery Lane is the perfect oasis to drink up some culture on a busy day.
Sure, Central may be home to more fine art galleries that we can count but it’s not all stuffy as it may seem. These world-class international galleries bring not only the biggest names in the global art scene – we’ve seen the likes of Ai Weiwei, Takashi Murakami, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, to name a few – but also stage a myriad of installations that require interactiveness from viewers and often looks great on the gram.
Central is also great for gallery-hopping as many venues are clustered together in a single block like H Queen’s or Pedder Building, where you find many galleries across different specialities including Art Supermarket, which focusses on street art, and fine-art photography-centric La Galerie Paris 1839. Here’s our pick of the best art galleries in Central.
