Who is the Curious Duke?

Having founded award-winning Curious Duke Gallery in 2011, Eleni Duke has cemented her position on the UK art scene with collaborations with London-based businesses, showcasing at the UK art fairs and joining the judging panel of all female street festival Femme Fierce. 2015 saw the gallery come second to the highly respected Richmix in the TimeOut #LoveLondon culture awards.

Duke’s nurturing approach to young talent has seen her winning 2nd place for Micro Business of the Year 2013, with her artists taking to the airwaves on BBC radio and featured in London’s press as well as top art publications such as After Nyne. The winner of Secret Art Prize 2018 will join this cohort of creatives with representation from CDG. Find out more about the gallery here

The Secret Art Prize provides a platform for artists to present their work to the right audience and the Curious Duke Gallery provides a great (and much needed) level of support for an artist to grow.
