Photo Basel was an absolute delight. Great to see my friends at Dubai based Tribe magazine http://tribephotomagazine.com at the very entrance of the fair, making it impossible to miss out on all the amazing Middle Eastern artists featured. The covers of Tribe magazine are truly eye catching, and I would love to see the magazine at more and more art fairs this year.
AB43 Contemporary http://www.ab43contemporary.com had affordable versions of works of one of my favorite artists, Halim Al Karim. They also had works by some great Turkish, Iranian, and Middle Eastern artists.
Great art on carpets at widmertheodoridis gallery http://www.0010.ch , and T’he Girl with the Pearl Earring’ look alike photograph The Blue Turbin by Hendrik Kerstens at Flatland Gallery http://www.flatlandgallery.com
