Open from Thursday 15th Sept – Sunday 18th Sept
Location: Hoxton Arches, E2 8HD

‘The Modest Magnificent’ is an exhibition showcasing glorious artworks presented from our favourite artists, from the established to the up-and-coming, encompassing art in all forms, mediums and genres.

After the last couple of years where exhibitors and artists have struggled to put on shows, we wanted to bring together this dynamic group of artists and give them a forum and space to showcase their magnificent art. Our artists have a strong desire to create ground-breaking art, working tirelessly to produce magnificent work which reflects their unique style.
This exhibition is our most momentous to date and celebrates art and the artists behind the artwork.

The Modest Magnificent cleverly combines contemporary genres including, figurative, abstract and street art, all under one roof in an expansive urban setting, under the railway arches in Hoxton.

Expect to see an immersive event, with live street painting and highly desirable Limited edition prints which will be launched at the opening night.

Confirmed Artists: Aida, Ange Bell, Ant Carver, Ben Rider, Copy Right, David Shillinglaw, Donk, Elizabeth Power, Isaac Cordal, James Green, Jim McElvaney, Jonathan Lawes, Joseph Loughborough, Jo Peel, Lee Eelus, Luap, Mark McClure, Mobstr, Otto Schade, Pablo Delgado, Robert Sample, Ronch, Skeleton Cardboard, Slinkachu, Static, Zabou.

Dale Grimshaw is a painter and street artist originally from Lancashire and now based London. After an extensive gallery career Dale has recently been devoting time to street murals and has been widely recognised as one of the most powerful and talented of street artists on that scene. Over the past five years he has been invited to festivals nationally and internationally as well as painting many iconic walls across London and numerous other cities across the globe. Dale's latest paintings are of threatened indigenous people - mostly from West Papua New Guinea, exploring the relationship between tribal people and the increasingly callous profit led world of globalisation. These figures often collide on a backdrop of familiar symbols and signs of the western world -  producing a visual jarring effect that emphasizes our difference and their struggle. His work is boldly figurative and inspired by his strongly held humanitarian beliefs. Lately Dale has become involved with the political struggle to free West Papua from Indonesian occupation.This bitter and hard fought struggle is rarely reported in the West and through his work, Dale has been supporting Benny Wenda, the campaigns leader and long term champion, in raising awareness in the UK. Dale Grimshaw last exhibited at Well Hung Gallery for 'Assembly of the Gods', 2020.

Dale Grimshaw recently appeared on Extraordinary Portraits on BBC 1 episode 3. Tinie Tempah, matches members of the public with “extraordinary stories” to a selection of celebrated portrait artists who will then capture their likeness.”
