The Other Art Fair starts in Brick Lane today, and we wanted to give you a taster of what you can find there. We've already set out some great reasons to go. Below, we've picked five artists who highlight the variety of artwork you can ogle/purchase.
Hall's paintings on aluminium are inspired by the passing blur experienced when sat on the Underground — the platform rushes by, and colours bleed into one bright blur (unless there's signal failure and you're not actually moving).
These paintings are actually created on top of wallpaper, so up-close, seemingly-traditional landscapes gain an extra layer of texture, drawing the viewer in.
These beautiful birds sit atop Mondrian-inspired lines and are created on diary pages. They perch among appointments and reminders of daily tasks — artwork and the artist's workaday life becoming one.
This Icelandic artist digitally manipulates repeating patterns to create works that sit halfway between programming code and natural formations.
London landscapes and famous buildings are given an abstract new look thanks to Wallner's experimentation, with materials and techniques including neon lights and laser cutting.
