POPPED at Imitate Modern


The Marylebone London team headed down to the private view of POPPED at Imitate Modern last week. Situated in the heart of Marylebone on Devonshire Street, Imitate Modern focuses on some of the most exciting and creative upcoming artists from around the world.

Imitate Modern’s private views are artwork in themselves – we were greeted by red carpet, popcorn and a throng of people.

Wall to wall with art enthusiasts, collectors and admirer’s, the event reflected the lively and captivating range of work on display. The exhibition plays tribute to pop culture and some of the world’s most iconic figures, trends and muses; and captured in a range of mediums.

Featuring the work of a wide range of artists that included Amar Stewart, Tyler Shields and Romero Britto, Day-z and Mason Storm, the work of Lukas Avalon particularly stood out for us. His work featured some of recent times’ most iconic women, with collages of Grace Kelly and Kate Moss. The variation in textures and colour held our eye for most of the night. His work even came complete with T shirts featuring his piece, Samo Back to Soho.
