ROYAL INSPIRATION AT THE AFFORDABLE ART FAIR
A collection of colourful and eclectic works of art in celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday will be on display at the upcoming Affordable Art Fair in Hampstead Heath, from 16 June to 19 June 2016.
Artwork inspired by the Queen will appear among 100 galleries of original artwork, starting at £100.
The Affordable Art Fair, who has this year partnered with the blood cancer charity, Anthony Nolan, will feature the work of over 1000 artists, at a price point that makes it possible for not only the serious collector, but also the first time buyer or family to purchase a piece of art of their own.
The monarch-inspired works represent varied and unique takes on the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Pieces include 'Glamorous Queen' by Moriello, a portrait made up of vibrant digital pixels, 'Great Britain' by Justine Smith, inspired by one element of the monarch's presence in our everyday lives, and 'Portrait' by Wladyslaw Nieweglowski, inspired by winning a ticket to visit Buckingham Palace to celebrate the Golden Jubilee in 2002.
‘Glamorous Queen’ by Moriello. From £1,715 at Artêria Gallery.
Great Britain by Justine Smith. £425 at TAG Fine Arts.
Visitors to the fair will have the opportunity to try out their own artistic skills, by way of workshops, talks and tours, including tasters of popular courses from the Princes School of Traditional Arts.
Other special features:
Modern living will also play a big part in the subject matter of the artworks on display. Vaughn Horsman uses coding and 3D printing in the creation of his artwork, and Chuck Elliot uses light, colour and motion to explore the lengths of technology and what it can do for artists' work.
The Affordable Art Fair will begin with a special Anthony Nolan Charity Private View on Wednesday 15 June (5.30pm - 9.30pm), with the fair officially opening its doors on Thursday 16 June 2016.
