Under the Same Sun, South London Gallery

I recently spent the perfect day out in London.

Under the Same Sun

It was nothing extravagant, and it didn’t cost any money, but was just my ideal day out – filled with long walks, and ambling around in parts of the capital I don’t usually frequent.

Like all perfect days, it started off with egg and soldiers at La Dinette (they do fantastic coffee), before heading down south.

I hadn’t ever been to the South London Gallery before, but I really loved the space.

I was there to see Under The Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today. I really loved the pieces – a diverse mixture of mediums and styles. I was also lucky enough to run into Natasha (from Graphique Fantastique) and made an appearance on her YouTube channel. Go check it out, as she’s great (and be sure to subscribe!)

    That looks like such an interesting gallery, I love all kinds of art and the Del Monte piece is so striking.

  • This looks amazing. I love all the coloured acrylic especially! Oh and the postcards, such a great way of owning art!

  • Considering how often I am in London I have barely been to any exhibitions. I still need to go to the V&A! x

  • Not really… I wish I had the time to pop to London more often but there is so many things to do and so little time 🙁

  • I hadn’t heard of La Dinette, and the South London Gallery looks great too – I’m a fan of mobile sculpture

  • Oh wow what an interesting gallery – I love the quirky look of the artwork. x

  • All the artwork looks so unique and quirky! What an interesting place!

  • The fact that it is free makes it even more of an incentive for me to visit, I do like art and this looks like a great gallery I could check out xx

  • It looks really interesting and I love that it’s free!
    All the best days start with eggs & soldiers <3
