End of the Road Festival 2017

Broth Art presents, for the first time at End of the Road Festival, House Rules, an exhibition of work by our award winning visual artist, Dan Jamieson and Babak Ganjei.

House Rules invites you into a pop-up living room, a world that blurs the lines between real-life and fantasy. It’s where we’ve been watching TV for generations, escaping reality and feeding our unhealthy appetite for celebrities. Showing in the New Pavillion, House Rules, showcases work by Jamieson and Ganjei that satarise popular and celebrity culture. The multi-media exhibition also presents two 7 minute artist profile films by Jamie Rathbone, a London based filmmaker, as well as an interractive green screen experience, where attendees can be super-imposed into Babak Ganjei’s painting of the Simpson’s living room.

About Dan Jamieson

Dan Jamieson is an award-winning artist who draws satirical caricatures. His humorous drawings of celebrities have been making an impression since his degree show at Camberwell College of Art in 2009. He has since worked with the likes of Rough Trade, End of the Road Festival, Liberty’s and in 2016 exhibited a large collection of work at Wieden and Kennedy in Amsterdam. Jamieson is the resident artist at Crate Brewery in Hackney Wick with his illustrations featured on their broad range of beer cans, bottles and tshirts.

About Babak Ganjei

Babak Ganjei is an artist living in London. Raised on pop culture, his work are visual commentaries on day to day life, often using websites such as ebay or instagram to interact with the outside world. His series of paintings ‘Some Places That I’ve Lived’ recreate a number of instantly recognisable living rooms from 90’s sitcoms  “I grew up with television as company and in some ways it may have blurred the line between reality and fiction”.

Since graduating from St. Martins, his sense of humour and general stream of consciousness has helped him develop a very broad portflio of visual art. His ebay auctions have made it into the national papers and got him some notoriety, having sold six twigs, found in his local De Beauvoir neighbourhood, for £62, claiming that “like the Spice Girls, each twig had character”. Other ebay auctions have included a painting of his heavily indebted debit card, and space on his bookshelf.

Ganjei has also worked with Random Acts on Channel 4. His animated cartoon was screened at Somerset House in August 2017 and will be broadcast on Channel 4 in September.

About Broth Art

Broth Art thinks creatively around the need for a commercial space, trading as a gallery online, at art fairs and pop-ups across London. We sell and showcase art by emerging artists across the UK and Scandinavia making their unique works visable to art collectors from across the globe.

Kim Soep, an art consultant by profession founded Broth Art in 2014. With eight years experience selling art in galleries across London, Kim’s ambition is to break away from the stuffy, elitist reputation that surrounds the art-buying world and make it more accessible; meanwhile helping artists to exhibit and sell their work. 

For that reason, Broth Art makes it easy for customers to buy online, providing affordable shipping to all buyers around the world. We also collaborate with independent businesses and work with interior designers across London, sourcing art and tailoring suggestions to their brand, style and brief. In doing so, we hope to expand our audience and provide a trading platform for all Broth’s artists.
