The Art of the Selfie

Shoreditch Selfie Gallery

A pop-up gallery celebrating 'The Art of the Selfie' has arrived in Shoreditch.

There'll be a gallery of self-portraits and a series of workshops looking at the psychology and skills behind taking pictures of yourself. You'll be able to learn photography techniques and even draw your own charcoal portrait.

The event is the work of art retailer King & McGraw. Creative director Gyr King says: ‘We all think of the selfie as a modern day concept but our pop-up gallery and shop will explore the artistic origins of the selfie – from classical portraiture to Warhol’s iconic pop art pieces.'

The pop up gallery will be running in Old Street station until 14th November.
