Nelly Duff is an Edition House & Gallery established in 2005, nestled amid the creative heart of London’s East End, on Columbia Road’s famous flower market. ‘Nelly Duff’ is cockney rhyming slang for 'LIFE.'
The gallery exhibits editions and original pieces from artists at the forefront of the Street, Tattoo and Graphic art world, including international artists from Barcelona to Baltimore. Central to the successes of the gallery and the artists it represents is the strong development relationship between the two, who each continually strive to innovate via unique shows and special edition releases.
Nelly Duff champions the development of high quality hand-made editions; supporting traditional craft and age-old techniques. The gallery was one of the first physical spaces to exhibit Street Art internationally, and their editions are coveted by museums and private collectors across the globe.
Nelly Duff currently holds the world record for the highest number of screens used to produce a hand pulled screen-printed edition, with Ben EINE. The artist’s ‘Twenty First Century’ canvas was gifted to President Obama, by David Cameron, during a state visit in 2010.
In March 2012, Nelly Duff was invited to be a main exhibitor at the prestigious ‘Pick Me Up Art Fair’, Somerset House. Here Nelly Duff presented a group show entitled ‘Zoo’, observing animals and their enclosures. Some 30,000 people attended the exhibition. Furthermore, in April 2012 Nelly Duff was invited by the Victoria & Albert Museum to take part in ‘Street Art, Tripol.’ In partnership with the British Council, this was the first international exhibition to visit post revolutionary Libya.
Nelly Duff is regularly invited to contribute to lectures at the University of the Arts, London.
Such achievements recognise Nelly Duff as a leader of the emerging arts.
