Set in the heart of London in a breath taking location within the vaults beneath The Royal Exchange, The Libertine’s impressive architecture and interior make it the perfect spot to enjoy dinner or a tipple.
Built in 1571 it’s steeped in history, the site sits on the location where the very first royal alcohol licence in Britain was granted adding to it’s intrigue. The bustle and opportunity around the old Royal Exchange attracted merchants, heralds and rogues from across the city as well as further afield.
With this in mind the artworks focus on the history of the building, drawing inspiration from those characters that frequented The Royal Exchange. Old meets new with traditional portrait artworks elevated with a contemporary twist. This clever juxtaposition works to creates a range of fun, quirky artworks that add to the character of the building.
The framing style and impasto finish give the look of authentic oil paintings and sit perfectly against the exposed brick of the vaulted rooms.
