Why locals recommend it
When I moved to London from Glasgow in 2009 to pursue a music career, I lived near Brick Lane, and went to this gallery a lot. It’s very peaceful, shows new and innovative artists, and the gift shop is great. Visual art is always inspiring—seeing how people communicate through colours and textures the way I do through music. I’m a huge admirer of Frida Kahlo and the gallery introduced the then little-known Mexican painter to London audiences in 1982. I love this part of the gallery’s history and feel it has special meaning for me.
