EN.Gallery

EN.Gallery

EN.Gallery is a gallery space in the Cultural Quarter in Stoke–on–Trent’s city centre. The focus for Upstairs Gallery is to showcase urban art from all over the world— from the graffiti, design, typography and photography sectors, including (and open to) many more. The space is also a place for lectures, talks, screenings and events, and is open for hire.


Faust 

FAUST

We brought renowned graffiti artist and typographer Faust to the UK for his debut solo show at Upstairs Gallery.

After a successful Arts Council England bid, we were able to produce a mural as part of our New Horizons project, and Faust's first ever screen print run in our workshop.

Feature Exhibitions

FAMOUS WHEN DEAD

We hosted local low-brow artist Famous When Dead in our gallery space for 2 weeks — one of our favourites to date!

ILLUSTRATEBOARDING

The brains behind skateboarding brand Goblyn Crew brought together a series of incredible artists and illustrators for a skate centric exhibition.

DARREN JOHN

London based Darren John had a couple of months in the gallery, where he worked to change the space and the idea of how a gallery should present work.

TOBY CURTIS

Toby paints abstracts, a very old fashioned notion but one that he clings to out of nothing more than a pure enjoyment of painting and paintings.


45RPM

45RPM

Another successful Arts Council England bid saw us bring Bristol based graffiti artist 45RPM for a new year exhibition in our Gallery — we also worked with him on two new screen prints for the show and a new piece of ceramics with local ceramiscist Jasmine Simpson.
