The Lonely Londoners
The Lonely Londoners are three self-actualising artists of colour moving away from theory to practice. We are trusting ourselves and our generation to cultivate a progressive and inclusive community of young international creatives. We operate as an art haus of curators, creative directors, editors, a micro-press and distro to best embrace this new wave of potential and promise we see in all of us.

  • Queenies, Fades, & Blunts is an pop-up QTPOC beauty space curated by The Lonely Londoners featuring original works from Mojuicy (Mohammed Fayaz), Quilombo (Bryan Rodriguez), and Kareem Reid & Khaleb Brooks.

    Curating a production of film and artwork from these local artists of color, The Lonely Londoners invite you to indulge in these abstract ideas of un/safe cultural spaces, herstories, hair stories, beautification and how these processes are experienced socially, culturally and politically. Submissions for a following zine are now open for print and online publication in August, which you can find here.

    We want to see you all there. Join us for an early evening of refreshments & the sweetest vibes followed by papijuice​ Volume 14 at One Last Shag, with guest DJs Beto and Ushka of iBomba.

    QUEENIES FADES & BLUNTS. BROOKLYN. SUMMER 2014.

    We’re moving to NYC for the summer and our family is growing.

    QFB* is a multi-platform project focused on queering barbershops, hair salons and other beauty spaces. This project will address the abstract ideas of beautification and how that process is experienced socially, culturally and politically. 

    This is a collaborative effort between The Lonely Londoners, Quilombo, Mo Juicy, Papi Juice, Elvin Tavarez and Khaleb Brooks. Born out of our desire to participate in an international exchange between POC creatives/artists. We were lucky to connect with others who are progressive and inclusive culture producers. By sharing our understandings and ideas an organic partnership was formed.

    submissions, requests and ideas are open to all!

    CHANGING STATE: AN EXHIBITION 15.05.14

    The Lonely Londoners had the pleasure of collaborating with Tian Glasgow on, Changing State, his sophomore play.

    CS is a darkly comic coming-of-age tale of four inner city young adults and their struggle with unemployment, motivation, aspirations and self-esteem. We curated monologues from the full play and a gallery of artist responses to the emotions and themes. We hope that this melting pot event was a place that gave a lightbulb of inspiration to attending playwrights, directors and print artists alike.

    The Lonely Londoners: Changing State | SheUPPITY.

    A Review of last night by SheUPPITY.

    What I love most about the Lonely Londoners exhibitions is the way the art work is reminiscent of the work of neo-expressionist and contemporary artists such as  Jean-Michel Basquiat, Barbara Kruger, John baldessari., Jenny Holzer and Paula Scher, who all created work that expressed their thoughts and feeling on the human condition, society and their personal philosophies. The Lonely Londoners exhibitions are curated within urban spaces, in a way that feels carefully thought out but free with a strong cut and paste vibe. There is no staleness of white walls and an amass of blank emptiness which is characteristic of the usual Art exhibition. Instead viewers are encouraged to interact with the space that they are in and become a part of the creation, by the end of the night the space is completely transformed.

    Changing State is a darkly comic coming-of-age tale based around four inner city young adults as they make important decisions about their future.

    We’re back just in time for Spring with a heavy collaboration between playwright, Tian Glasgow of newslangproductions and three talented illustrators/graphic designers blahblahbekke, cecileemeke & croydonnitty.

    We’d love to see you there to get a taster of the show and view the work from a group of artists who connected with the script.

    In an effort to raise funds for the production of the full play donations will be taken on the door on a 'pay what you wish' basis.
