As part of the London Festival of Architecture 2023 (L.F.A.), Populo Living - Newham’s housing developer - has teamed up with the artists from Fire Station Arts to launch Newham Kaleidoscope, a free open exhibition celebrating the burgeoning Newham art scene. 

This event is our response to this year’s L.F.A. theme In Common and showcases a kaleidoscope of styles, themes, and techniques, each piece offering a unique glimpse into the imagination of the artists who are part of our community.

The exhibition features over 80 captivating works on display, created by more than 40 talented artists hailing from all over the borough. From emerging talents to established artists with a rich body of work, the exhibition is a testament to the creative energy thriving within Newham.

This is a family-friendly event. 

The kids’ creative corner gives young artists the opportunity to add their own twist to print-offs of some of the works on display -  or create their own new masterpieces!

Whether you are a seasoned art collector or simply happen to fall in love with a piece, many of the works on display are for sale.

All sales are commission-free so artists will receive 100% of the proceeds.

If you would like to purchase one of the pieces for sale, you can contact the artist directly using the link under their biography on ‘The Artists’ page.

For further information, please read our ‘Work for Sale’ T&Cs.
