We met Vincent Eames of Eames Fine Art in one of his galleries in Bermondsey Street currently showcasing the print artifact of Rembrant, the father of printing. He loves Bermondsey Street for its wonderful sense of community.

As an art historian, Vincent was excited to announce the launch of the new space on Tanner Street that will be dedicated to a fully functioning print studio and the history of print making.

White Cube

White Cube is one of the world’s leading venues for contemporary art with spaces in around the globe. Bermondsey’s location is currently showcasing “A New Nature” exhibit. The exhibit focuses on combining the industrial materials and process while giving attention to the organic.

The exhibition pays homage to Isamu Noguchi. The title of the exhibition is taken from a speech he gave students in 1970, saying “The nature of trees and grass is one thing, but there are many degrees of nature. Concrete can be nature. Interstellar spaces are also nature. There is human nature. In the city, you have to have a new nature. Maybe you have to create that nature.”


It is always great to see the passion and dedication that goes into making Bermondsey such a thriving artistic community. If you’re thinking of moving to the area or are simply looking for a new place to admire art, be sure to check out these highlights of Bermondsey’s art scene!
