It was the biggest week in London’s cultural calendar, and you better believe the Sweet ‘Art team were (more than eagerly) hitting the streets. Yes folks, we’re talking about Frieze Week – a week dedicated to the thing we love the most – art.

ACROSS THE FREE LAND
Across The Free Land by ZUMAR7 – Hundred Years Gallery
In his latest exhibition, ZUMAR7 works a lot with images found on flags and emblems of different countries, and does so in order to tell a story. ZUMAR7’s colourful drawings also explore themes of diversity and international togetherness.
Also included at Hundred Years’ private viewing was work from photographer, Mervyn Diese.
