Phunky London Art Gallery presents the visual art of Miklos Legrady. The works shown combine today's art narratives and cultural currents. We focus on artwork that is contemporary with an edge and show artists working at the forefront of an aesthetic and visual language.

In media partnership with Hudson Coldblue

Miklos Legrady is a visual artist, anti-hero and protagonist who’s expecting trouble. He steps out of the art world’s blind spot, deconstructing myths and fictions. Emerging as a hybrid between scholar, ad buster, and poli-sci commentator, Legrady moves through a world of political, social, and cultural intrigues, trends, and events; like the Energizer Bunny, Legrady just keeps on going and going.

Legrady is represented in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada’s Museum of Contemporary Photography and the Canada Council Art Bank, along with private collections and the Rhizome Artbase. His work has been shown across Canada and internationally through exhibitions in the USA, England, France, Germany, Russia, Denmark, Belgium, Hungary, Spain and Japan.
