Atomic The Gallery: Attack & Decay

We are delighted to announce our second exhibition ‘Attack & Decay’ showcasing the new work of Dan Pelonis MFA.

Working within the Pop art aesthetic Dan’s painting explores the degradation and gradual abstraction of an image when repeatedly painted. The artist’s choice of subject matter and use of shadow combine to make works which are both equally striking and thought provoking.

‘Attack & Decay’ runs until June 30th in our new additional gallery space. To book a viewing please e-mail us

Hang-On Coat Racks at Atomic

Now available at Atomic these fun Hang-On Coat Racks by UK designer Jade Barnes-Richardson.

Hang On is an unpretentious and humorous coat rack that is accessible and easy to decode with its oblique expression.

UK based Jade Barnes-Richardson has taken the archetypal coat hanger and created a new and exciting piece of furniture from an original idea. Inspired by how clothes, overcoats and other accessories are often dumped around the home, Hang On is a coat rack consisting of a collection of several coat hangers. Chaos and useful order at the same time!

Hang On is available in a vibrant Cobalt blue, Canary yellow and Dove grey.

The Hang On collection can now be viewed at Atomic 965 Queen St West or can be purchased directly through our Online Store
