The Affordable Art Fair in Battersea is back this Spring with a larger and more diverse art offering than ever before. This year, the fair is collaborating with Becca Pelly-Fry, curator of Elephant West, to host an exhibition within the fair that will showcase the most innovate large-scale pieces of art from 2019’s most up and coming artists.
The theme of the 2019 Spring Affordable Art fair is colour. A theme we welcome, as sometimes London can seem rather dreary, especially at this time of year. It’s the eighteenth edition since it was launched in Battersea Park in 1999 with the aim of being an art fair that is accessible, friendly and relaxed, taking away from the stigma of art being exclusive and only understandable if one is working within that industry. What started out as a fair attracting a generous 10,000 visitors is now pulling in over 185,000 art lovers every year, with Affordable Art Fairs being held in cities globally, such as New York, Brussels, Singapore, Melbourne, Milan, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Hamburg and Hong Kong, as well as London.
If you’re an art aficionado, you’ll know the drill. But if you’re interested in getting some art for your home for the very first time, make sure you head to the Affordable Art Fair because there’s no doubt you’ll leave with a wealth of knowledge on the creative subject. As well as all the exhibitors selling art starting from around £50, the 2019 Spring programme includes workshops and events allowing guests to really get involved. Whether you’re interested in taking a Colour Masterclass, discover the connection between Colour and Human Psychology, or learn how to Master your Materials, all colour-based subjects will be covered.
