THE WAYWARD GALLERY
47 MOWLEM ST
The Wayward Gallery can be found just off Vyner Street amongst a hot bed of contemporary galleries and the artistic communities of East London and Bethnal Green. The gallery regularly exhibits work from a range of artists both local and international. Upon one visit we saw pieces which required 3d glasses and another live digital piece which drew marks on a wall based on the movements of the viewer. Safe to say this place is brimming with exciting ideas and talent.
An aside: When my parents lived in London they frequented the Wayward Gallery. Both were lovers of cutting edge art. When I was growing up my friends were intrigued by the various sculptures and art work that were on the walls. I think the kinetic art pieces were most mezmerising. When my father died, I moved my mother into my home along with many of their pieces of art. Initially my mother was able to take care of herself, but as she has become more elderly, I need to exercise more oversight. We have talked about assisted living at a nearby home for seniors called Hart Heritage Estates, but neither she nor I really don't want to make that move yet. When my 40th wedding anniversary approached, my husband and I planned a trip to the South Pacific for a long desired snorkeling trip. My mother obviously could not stay home by herself. I considered hiring a care taker for our 2 wekk anniversary vacation, but my mothe suggested that I contact Hart Heritage Estates about short term respite care. What a brilliant idea. It would make me feel relieved that she was in an elder care facility with 24 hour care and it would give my mother a preview of how it would be if she were to move into Hart Heritage Estates. Hart Heritage Estates has two residential care facilities. My mother would be staying for two weeks at their Forest Hill assisted living location with 6.5 acres of park-like grounds. My mother would be able to take supervised walks outside. The one request my mother made regarding her 2 week stay was that she would be able to take one painting, which interestingly my parents had bought at the Wayward Gallery, with her. Hart Heritage Estates said it was not a problem. The upshot was my mother enjoyed her 2 week stay at Hart Heritage Estates, and we had a fabulous vacation on BoraBora.
London’s Wayward Gallery is bringing in the I still pick my nose group exhibition, opening this Thursday May 7 and running throughout the weekend.
The East London gallery welcomes seven new artists participating in the group show, and tells us to “[e]xpect walls plastered with drawings and paintings, free stickers, a shot girl”. Someone named Gabrielle (participating artist, Gabrielle de la Puente, most likely) is “trying to acquire (steal) a wheelie bin” and someone named Phil (artist Philip Williams, perhaps) is “doing something with coffee bags…”.
Participating in I still pick my nose alongside Williams and de la Puente are artists Anne-Dauphine Borione, Molly Gough, Alexandra Gribaudi, Hiroaki Onuma and Sam Shaw.
Highsnobiety TV | Stance x Wayward Gallery present Locals Only
To launch the upcoming Stance x Chocolate collaboration for Spring 2015, Stanceteamed up with The Wayward Gallery London to host the “Locals Only” skate jam and competition. With the idea of bringing Stance’s Californian roots to the core skate community in London, the event featured a specially designed hand-built ramp shaped like a wave, covered with the hand-painted works of illustrator and artist Rob Mathieson. Known for his graphic skate and surf imagery, the bespoke ramp was the centerpiece of the event, which brought together pro and local skaters to battle it out for a cash prize.
Fuck Buttons and photographer Alex da Mora will host an exhibition tonight at London’s Wayward Gallery.

Esteemed photographer Alex de Mora has taken a bunch of photos for VICE and also did all the cool jewellery themed artwork for the Fuck Buttons album Slow Focus. He’s got an exhibition launching this week with some of his work from the campaign plus some brand new shit. You should go to it because it’s going to be a lot better than anything else that you have planned tomorrow evening.
Mora shot the artwork for Fuck Buttons’ last album Slow Focus, and has “worked closely with the band over the past year, both in his studio and on the road.” The exhibition will also feature DJ sets from Fuck Buttons and friends.
Here’s some more info, from the exhibition’s press release:
The Slow Focus imagery is a stark collection of jewellery and abstract objects intended to visually interpret and compliment the sounds and dark landscape of the album. The exhibition will feature a selection of prints from the album sessions, the physical album cover jewellery presented on a plinth in the gallery and a selection of Alex’s further work with the band, including singles sleeves and shots taken during his trip with them to their headline slot at the Glastonbury 2013 Park Stage last June.
Exclusively for this show, Alex and Fuck Buttons have collaborated once more to create a final and, as yet, unseen piece of artwork, to both celebrate and complete the set. This new piece will be on display at the show and will also be available in a limited and numbered run of 100 signed art prints at the event.

Monsters are typically figments of our imagination; large, ugly, and frightening. They can also appear in human form, often cruel, wicked and violent. We all have our own individual monsters, whether it lurks under our beds, in the manager's office at work or haunting our dreams. For Monsters Ink, curators Chris Mackenzie and Benjamin Liebenhals have invited thirteen prominent artists to face their own worst nightmare and put ink to paper. Exploring the deepest, darkest recesses of their minds and their worst fears, the paper acts as a window into their own particular torment.
The nature of the exhibition provides thirteen individual and unique works, offering the viewer an intimate and ominous glimpse at the artists' personal monsters. Curated by Chris Mackenzie & Benjamin Liebenhals and featuring the work of: Jack Binnie | Jess Byrne | Daniel Cree | Lucas Dupuy | Freddie Goodchild | Ziggy Grudzinskas | BRK 192 | Joseph P. Kelly | Andrew Khosravani | Alex McCullough | O.TWO | Chris Stead | Jay Teasdale.
A limited edition zine and original artwork will be for sale. Refreshments will be provided at the private view.
