BEYOND WALLS is the first of what we at Reload aim to make an annual gallery event. We have decided to make it an open artist call event in order to showcase the wide range of UK and Global Urban / Street art. Our aim is to give the wealth of new, up and coming talent an opportunity to show their work alongside some of the greats of the Urban art scene. We see so much amazing work out there and we feel that we are fortunate enough to be in a position to be able to show some of this immense talent and help spread the word.

This year Reload Gallery will be showcasing the modern oil painting works of 3 huge talents in the medium. James Rawson is known for his punchy pop explosions on large canvases depicting the excesses of modern life, the ubiquity of advertising, sex selling everything, fast food and TV as the drug of a nation. Dutch artist Frank E Hollywood and his stunning modern master depictions of Tudor inspired women juxtaposed with modern day objects and weapons of war and Mason Storm with his signature controversial take on the old masters. Mason will also be painting his latest creation live over the weekend.
After her huge success at last years Moniker Art Fair we will again be showing the latest works by Parisian artist Monika Nowak. Known for her sexy pop heroines on plexiglass, Monika will this year be showing something a little different but very very special.
Also joining Reload will be Copyright. One of the most recognisable and collectable artists on the urban art scene, who's work has featured in many galleries and exhibitions both in the UK and overseas. If you have even the slightest interest in urban art then you will know the work of Copyright. Also showing on the Reload stand will be fresh new talent Johnman, who spray paints his emotionally charged, poignant images onto used train tickets and reclaimed signs. Expect something super cool from this artist especially created for Moniker.
To top it all off and shine some light we will also be showing some hand blown neon works by Illuminati. In his own words - "Look to the light. Follow the light. Learn from the light. We are Illuminati"
