The Other Art Fair

So despite the flu we managed to get to the opening night of The Other Art Fair at the Old Truman Brewery East London. You should definitely pop in this weekend, it's a great opportunity to discover and buy art from 100+ of the some of the best emerging artists. Also live music, some rather tasty nibbles courtesy of chef Freddy Money (formerly of Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester), theatre by non zero one and a hidden absinthe bar and artist installation in the backstage of the fair.

The great thing about this show is it offers the you possibility of talking directly to the artists before they are snapped up by a mainstream art gallery and their prices doubled. Art is always best observed 'live' as you need to get up close to really appreciate the work, so if you're in London we highly recommend a visit.

Here are a few of our favourites from the show.

Karen Thomas

Karen Thomas is a British artist based in Montpellier, France. Her dynamic, painterly depictions of pop culture icons and characters such as Mickey Mouse and Jane Fonda are characterised by their thick, quick brush strokes.  These new pieces rely on the paint to earn its place on the surface by giving it the freedom to tell much of the story with an energetic trust.  She has shown both individually and in group exhibitions at the RA Summer Exhibition, The Other Art Fair and Art Below London, SELECT Art Fair, New York, and the Berliner Liste, Berlin.

Steve McGinn
'I draw my inspiration from the limits of our understanding, unseen phenomena so large and small that imagination is required to make sense of them or to give them anything close to a tangible form; reflecting an admiration of our standing within an age of discovery, scientifically, technically and above all artistically.'

'I am an artist in everything I do, it has greatly enriched my life, fulfilling a compelling need to create - an addiction to the fleeting sense of discovery it brings. It is this ongoing process of creative discovery that I try to share'

Susie Breen
With observational drawing as its genesis and using a mix of mark-making, colour and text, Susie’s work explores life’s ‘light and dark’ with insight and wit. She’s keenly concerned with notions of identity, the power of recollection, the singularity of shared experience and the value of ‘play’ as working method. See more from Susie Breen here.

Anna Fafaliou
Exploring whiteness. Anna Fafaliou is a London based conceptual and visual artist. Fascinated by the colour white she creates imaginary environments revealing the various interpretations and associations with the whiteness from minimalist to blankness, from abstraction to purification. Anna sets objects, materials and forms in a dialogue with the space and the viewer questioning the way people embody objects & forms. Inspired by the notion of memory, identity & visual perception she creates minimalist installations & performances working in gallery, theatre and public space.

Charlotte Edey
Charlotte Edey is a London based illustrator & designer specialising in hand-drawn monochrome illustration. Subtly suggestive, her work expresses detailed complexity in linear simplicity. Exploring fluidity, soft femininity, and surreal landscapes, the infinity suggested by the sphere is a frequently fitting capsule for each idea; creating a gradual universe of microworlds. Clients include Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, Orange, Monica Vinader, ELIAS&GRACE, Josh Wood Atelier, The Great Escape Festival, Baukjen, Astley Clarke & The White Company
