I Know What I Like is an arts facilitation organisation which aims to enrich people’s access and understanding of London’s contemporary art scene, while promoting work by artist members through arts consultancy, sales, rentals and events.
We organise free gallery visits and art walks, members only art soirées, and promote up-and-coming artists through exhibitions and events in selected locations. Have a look at our supported artists here.
The model is based on the importance of encountering art in context, whether it be in a gallery, in public space or in a studio. We operate simultaneously as a free, events-driven social enterprise and an artist representation venture, proposing challenging original artworks at entry-level medium price points.
