Affordable Art Fair Mark 2

We premiered a new Affordable Art Fair in North London last week.

I realise this is rather off topic, but the garden out the back is overgrowing and a mess. I've had little time for it lately, but may possibly give it some love this weekend; after I've had a lie in, having worked 12 days in a row. Or maybe, sometime this month. In the meantime, as this art stuff occupies most of my life at the moment, I thought I might as well share it.

New crowd, new clientele, new art.


We had something very fun provided by one of our faithful exhibitors, which was a photo booth in the front, where you could grab a framed print and have your picture taken with it, from an artist who is obsessed with letterpress and creates art from it.


You could also buy the prints at a cheap price, from the artist Stephen Kenney. Specially created for AAF Hampstead. I bought this one.




I thought it was a lovely sentiment, and appropriate. Also, I could pick my edition number, 18, which number has special significance for me in a couple of ways. I'm super pleased.



So as well as buying my giraffe, who wasn't even on show, it was a great fair.









This is a person, by the way, not a piece of art :-)






Long live the Affordable Art Fair, again.

  3. Hi, I'm a journalist trying to find someone who has bought a piece of artwork from the Affordable Art Fair for something I'm working on. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind discussing with me what you bought and what you think of the fair. If you're interested in doing this, could you drop me an email to hametcalf@uclan.ac.uk?

    Thanks for your time!
