Art London for gamblers and a truly global story

Four days at Frieze in the park

Exclusive, expensive and red wine like art in a green London park

LONDON FRIEZE: As part of Regent´s Park was crammed with sculpture and most of the artwork indoor came as a tasty and fresh feast, this years of art at Frieze seems to have increased prices more than anything else, even in this exclusive part of London. Most people investing in expensive art must be gamblers and that´s why more than 160 galleries from around the world is offering old and new – year after year in the park.

Wine and bargain. Even if Frieze London is a global story about costly art, you will always find works by young artists for a bargain, some starting as low as 100 pound. However, London is full of artists, contemporary art and innovative galleries, certainly no shortage for those interesting in collecting without being a hi-flying gambler. In general, you have to ask the gallerist for price of any specific artwork.

Talking about London and innovation, at the main bar they served some excellent wine brought all the way from Coonawarra, a wine region in South Australia. The Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon from Yalumba is plum red in colour and with aroma that fills the senses – and perfect with a steak. Normally a piece of art last longer than a bottle of red wine – even if this cigar-wine from Australia came up with a long and lasting finish.
