The Other Art Fair at The Old Truman Brewery
London was in full art-mode recently as the Frieze week was in full swing. For this #ArtThursdays feature we headed to see Saatchi Art’s The Other Art Fair at the Old Truman Brewery. Instagram Sensation Sara Shakeel, Artist & Slaves’ Musician Laurie Vincent joined 150 Game Changing Talents for the Artist-Led Fair.
13 – 16 October
What we love about The Other Art Fair is it's alternative approach to a traditional art fair, as once again it disrupted
the conventional Frieze week experience. This years fair didn't disappoint in providing art lovers in Londoners seeking an exciting new experience the opportunity to view some of the freshest art in the capital and meet the creators too. Check out our recap below...
This years The Other Art Fair featured a vibrant programme of exciting features, guest exhibitions, immersive installations, live poetry readings, DJs, the chance to buy stunning artwork directly from over 150 incredible emerging talents and much more.
Once inside, guests could discover, chat with and buy 1000s of original works and prints directly from 150 exciting emerging artists, with prices starting from just £100. Marking the 62nd global edition of The Other Art Fair and the 23rd fair in London, this event features a refreshing 50/50 split of male to female artists, with 50% of exhibitors based in London and 9% BIPOC creators. Highlights include an exciting array of outstanding emerging painters, printmakers, photographic works, collages and sculptures. See the full artist list here.
Tim Muddiman’s brutalist cityscapes are a hipster’s dream, bringing constructivist elements and muted tones to studies of culturally significant budlings such as the Trellick Tower. A contemporary Edward Hopper, Brendan Kramp’s oil paintings capture urban life with style and substance. After something more decorative, look no further than Assia Bennani the Moroccanborn London-based artist who lived in Hong Kong for 13 years, and draws influence from her multicultural experience and interior design background.
Always an accessible entry point into art collecting, the fair featured some of the best artists working in contemporary print today. Amy Gardner’s feminist prints celebrate powerful women with a stylistic 1950’s twist. Just like Amy herself, the works are non-apologetic, non-conformist, and bold. Another daring creator, Redbellyboy combines the languages of graphic design and fine art to produce uplifting and vibrant prints for a sunny, happy home.
