The gallery is run by artist Rufus Knight-Webb and represents 10 contemporary artists including photographer Alison Jackson and painter Juliane Hundertmark from Berlin. The gallery opened in Brixton in 2012 and made fast progress into the international art market, through exhibiting at fairs such as Art Miami and Volta. In 2018 the gallery relocated to Battersea. The current location accommodates residential art courses as well as offering an ‘Arts and Crafts’ era exhibition space.

” My objective has always been to curate a program of unique and curious content with artists who for one reason or another are not represented within the core contemporary art establishments. Knight Webb Gallery is a stepping stone on the artists journey. Artists with remarkable skill just don’t always fit into a wider art scene. Perhaps they are shy, eccentric or culturally so individual curators can’t fathom their work. Sometimes an artist has everything except the thick skinned ambition that gets you to the front of the queue.”
