Urban Antidote Art head to new home

The world of art can often be a complex and overwhelming place. Unless you are an art aficionado with a vast knowledge, it can be difficult to know what all the fuss is about.

However, one Leicester based gallery, believe they have the perfect ‘antidote’ for that.

With a wide range of pieces, and collections from artists of many genres, Urban Antidote believe they have something for everyone. Whether you are an art enthusiast or new to the artistic world, the gallery is the region’s leading art gallery, and is the brain child of Sara Lovatt and Rich Atkiss, who founded the gallery in 2013.

Recently, the gallery has moved to new city centre premises. Relocating from Lutterworth, where it has spent the last five years, October 2018 saw the gallery head to Silver Walk in St Martin’s Square.

Here, it will continue to showcase collections from a whole host of artists. This includes JJ Adams, who has become renowned for his interpretations of celebrities and figures from pop culture.        

To celebrate the new gallery, Urban Antidote hosted a fantastic launch event which was attended by a whole host of artists, including JJ Adams himself.    

Work from the likes of Paul Oz and De Montfort University graduate, Marcus Dove, will also be showcased in the gallery, as it looks to include works from some of the world’s most popular artists, as well as up-and-coming local stars too.

The gallery also comes with a fully functioning kitchen and separate event space which can be hired for an extra special corporate occasion.
