Who are we?
Situated at the heart of Bristol City Centre in an 18th Century Arcade, Gallery du 808 is one of the most central art galleries in Bristol; offering a platform for Artists looking to showcase their work to the more than 22,000 shoppers that visit each month.
We are an independent contemporary Art Gallery that takes pride in understanding the Artists that we work with, treating their work with the same care, attention and respect that goes into each master piece.
Bristol is one of the most inspirational and creative cities on Earth. It was voted the best place to live in the UK by the Sunday times, one of the coolest cities in the World by National Geographic and it ranked above Paris, Amsterdam and London as one of the most inspiring cities in the world by Travelbird. There is no shortage of talent in Bristol.
From Banksy’s street art through to the creation of Trip Hop and the now annual Upfest urban paint festival, thousands of Artists from across the globe have found a home here in these city streets, and so have we.
We are here to build a stronger community for artists both locally and internationally, offering a platform for truly talented individuals to be seen by the World.
The concept behind the gallery!
In contrast to the often sterile and prohibitive atmosphere of most galleries Gallery Du 808 is deliberately warm and inviting. The gallery is in itself a quirky, friendly and sophisticated space.
We wanted to create an art gallery that is both sophisticated and welcoming, where customers can feel comfortable browsing the fine artwork on display.
We bridge the gap between the Artist and the consumer. Finding that happy middle ground where the Artist feels rewarded and the consumer is left with a fine piece of artwork to be treasured for years to come.
