Hang-Up is pleased to introduce a provocative new exhibition from artist collaborative, kennardphillipps. The gallery will display the latest body of work from the acclaimed duo who is Cat Phillipps and Peter Kennard and whose compelling images have been studied for decades. Banksy was quoted saying 'I take my hat off to you.”

Entitled Blue Murder the exhibition investigates social decline and conservative ideologies. By using found materials, newsprint, charcoal and ink, the artist's have ripped away at layers to reveal the 'destruction of the welfare state'.

Director of the gallery Ben Cotton said ' The work as you would expect from Peter and Cat is powerful, provocative and politically charged. They are both extremely passionate about their cause and have devoted their lives to campaigning through their artwork. Whatever your view-point politically this is will be an exciting and emotionally charged exhibition.”

Since then, the two have been creating groundbreaking, iconic images and accepting commissions from all over the world be it the street, the gallery, the web, newspapers or public demonstrations.
