Atomica Gallery & Shop is now officially open in Hackney! We opened the doors to our amazing permanent space on April 18th, kicking off with a launch party to celebrate our new digs as well the opening of Hackney’s brand new independent shopping hang out (and our new home!) – The Village Green at Hackney Downs Studios.
The launch was huge. Loads of new faces, friends and family came to celebrate and check out our new space in full flight. Paskal from Rough & Tough crew had the the big boss tunes coming all night and our resident sailor girl kept all glasses charged in style with rum punch from our
launch-night boat bar! We love our new home and are so excited about our future here. Come down and check us out if you haven’t already.

In addition to our current selection of underexposed contemporary art, illustration and lowbrow weirdness we have also added four new artists to our roster: internationally acclaimed painter and Art Nouveau addict Audrey Kawasaki, influential American cartoonist Adrian Tomine, British tattoo artist Cassandra Frances and American artist and illustrator Luke Thomas, whose offbeat artwork appears on several Sub Pop and Burger Records releases. We’ve also increased our collectables range to include mid-century inspired ceramics from Jonathan Adler and decorative Vitra Wooden Dolls, originally designed in 1963 by Alexander Girard. Plus, brand new for the new space is a carefully selected range of art and culture books from some of our favorite artists and publishers, displayed in a beautiful booknook custom designed and built for us by our friend and carpenter extraordinaire Matt.
Come grab a read, hang out, say hello and check it all out! And while you’re here, pop in to all of the other great shops down here at the Village Green – Portamento, Smoking Gun Vintage, Multemyr, The Hackney Peddler and not forgetting The Russet – who as well as hosting some great after hours gigs, serves up a seriously tasty breakfast/brunch/lunch.
Stay tuned! We will be launching
our brand spanking new website in the coming months and are beginning to plot and plan lots of exciting events and exhibitions for the year ahead. We hope to see you down here soon and in the meantime check out more of our launch party pics on our Facebook page.
