CHARLIE SMITH LONDON was established opposite Hoxton Square in Old Street, Shoreditch in October 2009 with the objective of running an exceptional exhibition programme of dedicated one person exhibitions and dynamic curated group shows.
Specialising in emerging to mid-career artists, the gallery’s approach is collaborative and curatorial, and emphasizes work that engages critically with profound human and historical themes.
CHARLIE SMITH LONDON is recognised as a contemporary art gallery that discovers and develops vital artists, and actively seeks to evolve a global synergy for like-minded and progressive artists, collectors, galleries and curators.
Director Zavier Ellis is also co-founder of THE FUTURE CAN WAIT and has curated exhibitions in Berlin, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Klaipėda, London, Los Angeles, Naples, New York and Rome; and continues to place work in world class private collections globally. Ellis has also published the iArtBook 100 London Artists with renowned critic, historian and curator Edward Lucie-Smith.
