About Laz Emporium
Laz Emporium is very much a reflection of myself - goods from the shattered brain of Steve Lazarides.
The real life Laz Emporium is open now at 25 Lexington Street, Soho, London from midday till 7pm Tue/Wed, 8pm Thurs, Fri and Sat and 6pm Sun. It's closed on Mondays.
All our pieces are hand-made or sourced in the UK. Most are created in the new Laz Studio out in the Wild West Country. These are on sale next to objets d’anarchy from my own archive.
An emporium is ‘a store carrying many different kinds of merchandise’ – an eclectic and intriguing range of stock. My collection is the product of my bipolar mind, always leaping from one area of fascination to another. So ‘emporium’ made for a more fitting description than ‘gallery’ (been there, done that) or something trendy, which I could never countenance, like ‘marketplace’.
Laz Emporium is a family business. My mum and dad run the warehouse. Many of my old crew are on board, either up in the crow’s nest plotting a path ahead or below decks rowing for their lives.
And it feels like I’ve finally settled on a project that encompasses all my interests. Something that’s doesn’t just involve art, but also photography, design, and publishing and anything else that floats my boat. You’d be forgiven for thinking that the best things in life are un-categorisable – I’ll be picking up weird and wonderful esoteric clutter on this journey to sell here as well. Moreover, I’ll make new work with creatives of this world who can’t be pigeonholed.
But whatever it is, it’ll always have a subcultural element to its character.
It all certainly beats selling art in tents.
