3 hours solid is the time I spent yesterday at the Business Design centre where the London Art fair is being held until Sunday 23rd January and still I ran out of time to get to see or do what I had intended too. This is to show how much there is to see at this amazing event.
You get not less than 120 galleries exhibiting and you get great names such as John Piper or Alan Davies but perhaps more importantly you get to stumble upon less known or emerging artists which makes the whole experience worth being knackered at the end of your wander round.
Who said that the recession is or will affect the art market. Can’t remember. Well it does not probably matter as the mighty red dots were flourishing all over the place.
Enjoy below a selection of what really made my eyes water. Okay, you may call this ‘overreacted’ but I really enjoyed looking at these pieces.
