James Freeman is a gallery dedicated to discovering and promoting international emerging artists in the UK.
Established in 2003, the gallery has a strong focus on painting, representing artists whose work combines a sound knowledge of what has gone before it with a desire to break new ground in a way that is both historically informed and innovative. The gallery focuses on nurturing new talent from both the UK and abroad, providing artists with opportunities early in their career and then supporting them as they become more established in the contemporary art market.
James Freeman also has a solid international focus, and works with both artists and galleries from across the globe to introduce international emerging artists to the UK, as well as sourcing international opportunities for our UK artists.
The gallery is located on Upper Street, between Angel Station and Islington Green.
