Project Papyrophilia | April-Aug 2021

Online exhibition PROJECT PAPYROPHILIA sells a phenomenal 55 pieces in the first week!

Launched in April by CHARLIE SMITH LONDON, the gallery’s anti-virus initiative PROJECT PAPYROPHILIA sold a remarkable 55 pieces in its first week.


Curated by gallery director, curator and practicing artist Zavier Ellis, PROJECT PAPYROPHILIA is the gallery’s response to the unprecedented situation in which we find ourselves. PROJECT PAPYROPHILIA is an exclusively online exhibition of work on paper that is live on Artsy, the online platform for discovering, buying and selling fine art. Ellis states:

“I and the artists are delighted with the phenomenal response of collectors and the support they have shown. All artists have sold and Sam Jackson, in particular, has absolutely flown - we simply can’t get enough of his work. I have some great artists joining the project soon and we’re developing a virtual reality version of the show.”

All work is available at just £250 including P&P and the exhibition is an ongoing, fluid project where new work and new artists are continuously added.
