artrepublic Soho is launching an exclusive exhibition entitled ?Saints and Sinners? showcasing at St Martins Lane hotel. The independent Soho gallery has selected over thirty pieces from artists around the world, transforming the ?front room? of London?s original boutique hotel into an urban space.
Over twenty up and coming artists are providing original pieces for the show with most creating specially commissioned work. Highlights include a ?never seen before canvas? by the highly acclaimed Nick Walker. Many artists will be flying in to attend the preview of this one-off exhibition.
A private viewing will take place on Monday 10th November with the show opening to the public on Tuesday 11th and running until Friday 21st November 2008. ?Saints and Sinners? will be open for viewings between 12:00-22:00 with direct access through St Martins Lane hotel reception.

Other well known names are Missbugs, Pure Evil, Charming Baker, Mau Mau, Eine, Nick Georgiou and the British Collective Static.
artrepublic CEO Lawrence Alkin comments ?This organic project has been quite amazing to put together. We wanted to create an edgy show moving away from old school and showcase undisclosed pieces of art that give people that surprise factor. This is set to be an incredible mixture of talent from both the urban and contemporary art world. Providing people with a rare opportunity to buy an original piece of art from young International talent whose own shows normally sell out within seconds?.
Kevin Rockey, Hotel Manager St Martins Lane added: ?We are delighted to be collaborating with artrepublic to support this one off exhibition. It is great to see so much emerging talent in the urban and contemporary art world.?
