The Affordable Art Fair has made buying art a less exclusive affair
LONDON: Set in the beautiful Battersea Park and next to river Thames, The Affordable Art Fair (AAF) has been taken place every spring for the past 18 years. If you are visiting London at that springtime of the year it´s a very enjoyable event for the whole family with lots of activities for kids at Battersea Park Children´s Zoo, host of some farmyard animals.
Wide range. It’s easy access from Slone Square with free shuttle mini buses that takes you within 10 minutes direct to the Fair.
With more than 120 galleries representing 1,000 artists there are a wide range of artworks and low-cost art. My first impression was that it is a lot of young people attending this Fair compared with what I usual have experienced at other Art Events.
The AAF does exactly what it says. Here a young aspiring collector can pick up an original Artwork for like £200 up to £6,000, which is the maximum price for an artwork.
The Affordable Art Fair has made buying art a less exclusive affair. Here it´s easy to get tips for buying and it´s a good mix of work on offer. As a buyer you are better off investing in art by the younger, talented artists – it could be worth a hell of a lot more in a few year’s time.
Investing. Gallery Eyestorm offering work by both established and rising artists at an affordable price. Lucie Bennett is one of Eyestorm´s most celebrated Artists. Her style is executed through a range of different media included limited editions of screenprints, original paintings and mixed media.
“Lucie has long been admired for dealing with issues of female sexuality and identity. She has drawn interest from new art buyers and established collectors and is one of our most popular female artists”, director Henrik Riis at Eyestorm says.
Two exhibitions. Whether you’re looking for a picture to match your new curtains or to discover the works of a creative genius on the way up, the next possibility for affordable art in London will take place at Hampstead Heath in North-West London and the upcoming show in May includes mindful photography as well as sculptures.
