GET YOUR CULTURE FIX

Times New Roadman at Browns East

Times New Roadman was an anonymous artist, until he decided to reveal himself on Instagram last month. Roadman – otherwise known as Bournemouth-based Niall Gallagher – has amassed more than 50k followers on social media over the last couple of years thanks to his satirical pop art-inspired work. See it up close at a new exhibition named ‘Once Upon A Times In East' at Browns East gallery in Shoreditch. Featuring 30 works tackling a range of themes from politics to culture, Gallagher himself has described the exhibition as “visual marmite”. Decide for yourselves.
