Gallery 7, inaugural show, London
22 Earlham Street
Super Superficial, the London-based, Korean-conceived creatives team is most famous for its pioneering t-shirts prints, created from their sought-after bank of renowned illustrators and artists. This month, sees the company broaden its creative horizons with a gallery project opening in the centre of London’s Covent Garden.
The space, entitled Gallery 7, is located just off the iconic Seven Dials junction and has been designed by Super Superficial founder Sang Lee.
With an inaugural exhibition of work from Louise Zergaeng Pomeroy – an illustrator awarded the coveted D&Ad Best New Blood award last year – Gallery 7 is setting itself a high standard to sustain.

Pomeroy’s work is dark to the point of downright ghoulishness – she adopts arbitrary snippits from low-rent weeklies and adapts them to her own rather grisly designs. Comic, irreverent and technically mesmerising, Pomeroy’s illustrations offer a delicate glimpse into her left-of-centre outlook on life.
With upcoming shows from illustration heavyweights Matt Johnstone and Hannah Melin, Gallery 7 is set to be a haven of creativity for both established names and, in the words of the Gallery, ‘emerging talent looking for a foot up’.
