The Affordable Art Fair - Hampstead
This was my second visit to The Affordable Art Fair. The first time was in Amsterdam last year. And I can easily say that this is fast becoming a favorite of mine, if not for anything else than the fun of buying a lot of art and just walking out with it on any given fair day!
As its name implies, this fair has really affordable artworks! Everything at the fair has to be below 6,000 Pounds. The artworks are beautiful and by a variety of very young and upcoming artists, as well as more established and known artists. The variety of mediums and genres leaves little to be desired, and for anyone in love with art, yet not willing to spend an entire year’s salary, this fair is it!
Well organized, with super helpful and friendly staff, this fair was a joy to attend.
The grounds are stunning; a huge tent in the middle of a beautiful park - Hampstead Heath -surrounded by water and trees. It is the ideal place to spend a whole day enjoying art and nature.
I had a blast buying art for The Corner and some clients of mine, and actually needed a golf cart at the end of the last day to carry out all the artworks to a super sized van.
All in all a really fun experience! Great art, a great stroll to the fair, friendly galleries, artists, and organizers, and a great Champagne bar with delicious nibbles to top it all.
