Far Rockaway is a venue with a difference. It’s covered from head to toe with original art from some of the brightest artistic talents around.
Curated by Ben Oakley of ‘Ben Oakley’s Gallery‘ and Kevin Martin of ‘Hoxton Gallery’, the past five months have seen an abundance of art commissioned and created, establishing the Far Rockaway at the heart of Shoreditch’s artistic scene.
Andy Doig was commissioned to render Famous Queens N.Y landmark, Rockaway’s Playland in Neon. A tribute to Rockaways’ Playland destroyed during Hurricane Sandy.
The piece contains 100 feet of coloured glass and uses 30,000 volts of electricity.
