POW, the London gallery that helped launch Banksy, is closing

By Amah-Rose Abrams

Shoreditch institution and street art champions Pictures on Walls is closing its doors in December. They have specialised in street art and illustration for the last sixteen years and announced their closure with a low-key statement on the gallery's homepage: 'Pictures On Walls has been taken over by venture anti-capitalists and will cease trading from 31st December 2017. None of the existing stock will be available after this time.'

The farewell message goes on to say that the demand for the art they sell has surpassed the capabilities of the gallery, so it's time to go. The one upside of this is that you can buy now the remaining editions, prints and original works by Banksy, Massive Attack's 3-D Del Naja, Al Murphy, Ron Miller and more at knock down prices. Bargain bin Banksy, anyone?
