Chapman Brothers in Hackney Wick
There is no surer sign of an areas up&comingness than artists moving in to the larger premises. But when a large (in the famous sense) artist moves into an area - this is fantastic for the neighbourhood!!
According to the Evening Standard (http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/es-magazine-fashion/article-23600332-details/Jake's+progress/article.do) - this is exactly what Jake Chapman has done.
I am sure that the whole of Hackney Wick will welcome the arrival of Jake into our streets, cafes, lives & community events!
Please Jake - if you have any influence over your friends & contemporaries - please suggest to them that they also make the short hop from Shoreditch to the Wick - we need as many movers & shakers as possible to start putting Hackney Wick on the map for the RIGHT reasons!!
