In 2015 Art Assassins worked with Daniel Kelly, artist, hairdresser and founder of DKUK, a Peckham-based hair salon where art and hairdressing are combined. Together they investigated the politics of hair, the history of hairdressing and the way artists work with businesses.
Over the weekly sessions the group developed their own range of Art Assassins hair products inspired by the smells of Peckham named Liquid Rye which were used and sold at DKUK and the SLG shop.
Art Assassins are a group of young beings aged between 14-21 years old who meet every Tuesday at the South London Gallery. To find out more about the Art Assassins click here.
At DKUK Salon, paying clients get their hair cut in front of art. Realised by artist/hairdresser Daniel Kelly, DKUK provides a platform for engaging diverse audiences with contemporary art in the welcoming environment of a hairdressing salon.
The South London Gallery’s young people’s programme is supported by the SLG Council and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
