IN THE TEA ROOMS / BRICK LANE
In 2014, Karl Astéronyme take the initiative to create and open the very first site dedicated to the promotion of Brick Lane’s patrimony : ASTERONYME Gallery.
After several experiences among the traditional markets that make Brick Lane’s cultural richness, Astéronyme finally settles at the Tea Rooms market and at the Backyard Market. « It is crucial to preserve a direct link with the public, as on a sale market, to be accessible to anyone and to feed from this fruitful atmosphere. »
After 12 years of working in the field of communication, Karl drew the conclusion that anything could be promoted, except for the space within which we live. This has become his working guideline.
The Gallery displays a serie of digital printings, all numbered and signed (500 pieces), on 170gr papers. To be coherent with his approach to art as a freedom, Astéronyme keeps his work affordable to any budget. For 12£, you can enjoy a fragment of Brick Lane’s history.
The Gallery also is a space dedicated to the promotion of local artists, such as the talented and tumultuous Ben Rider – who also is committed to make art accessible.
