About: Not So Popular

Not So Popular are a collaborative group of young artists and writers. We were all a bit tired of doing lots of work that was never seen by anyone else except our nans, so we joined together to make a mark. We are put on art exhibitions, poetry nights and club events. We produce 'zines and prints. We do this because we want to showcase the work of young artists/writers who want to get their work out there. Not So Popular take their inspiration from the depths of cultural talent because everything from Van Gogh's ear to Brian Harvey's baked potato were once not so popular.
