DKUK Gallery: ‘An interview with Daniel Kelly’ (2016) video

, 3 November 2016

As part of the recent Art Licks Weekend 2016 programme, arts digital production company Video in Common commissioned a special interview with Daniel Kelly, founder of unisex salon and gallery DKUK.  

The London-based artist and hairdresser opened the Peckham-area space in 2014 as another means to not only getting a haircut but also interacting with art. In an effort to make art accessible to all, DKUK presents an opportunity for viewing new works in the familiar space of a salon by a Toni & Guy-trained stylist and artist. 

“It’s my art practice, it’s my business, it’s my  life”, says Kelly, who here talks about the beginning of DKUK, alternative business models for independent spaces and encouraging non-arts audiences to engage with artists and their work.
