Live Painting, Affordable Art, And A Well-Stocked Bar: Welcome To Talented Art Fair 2020

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Talented Art Fair.

'The Everyday' by Will Claridge

Fancy livening up your living room walls? Looking to add a bit more personality to your abode? Forget dog-eared film posters — it's time to invest in some proper art. And, with the imminent return of Talented Art Fair, now's your chance to have an absolute blast while doing so.

Since its debut back in 2017, Talented Art Fair has fast established itself as one of the best artist-led fairs in the capital. This is your chance to discover 90 gallery-level and award-winning artists as they present a vast variety of highly collectable contemporary art.

With artworks starting at just £50, and a £5000 price cap, Talented Art Fair is a great option for those new to the world of collecting art. Each artist — handpicked by Lemon Art, which has nine years' experience of curating art fairs and exhibitions — boasts a robust track record of success, whether they're long-established, or have just burst on to the art world scene.

But it's not all about the treasures you can take home; Talented Art Fair offers a totally unique way to spend your weekend. With live painting, banging tunes, and a full bar, it's as much a party as it is an event for aspiring art aficionados. There's also an exciting element of competition here, as the exhibitors battle it out to be crowned Talented Artist of the Year.

Talented Art Fair kicks off on Friday 6 March at the Old Truman Brewery with a Private View, 5pm-9pm. If you want to be among the first to discover this year's crop of paintings, prints and sculptures, grab your £8 Private View tickets here. Otherwise, you can enjoy free entry to the fair on Saturday 7-Sunday 8 March. Simply register here to let Talented Art Fair know that you're coming.

In the meantime, you can check out the full list of exhibiting artists via the Talented Art Fair website. We've also highlighted a few of our favourites below.

Evy Meehan

Polish-born artist Evy Meehan's focus on form draws on her architectural training — her striking work is all about colour, geometry, and capturing shards of light.

Adam Daniels

From 1980s cult film-inspired pop art to Kafka-esque slices of life in North East England, the subjects selected by Tynemouth-based artist Adam Daniels are nothing if not eclectic.

Jill Desborough

Jill Desborough trained as a commercial sculpture and modelmaker, and her body of work features puppetry, printmaking, and illustration. Desborough cites an attraction to the theatrical and the bizarre, with influences including fairy tales, Chaucer, and Mervyn Peake.

James Green

British-born, internationally-exhibiting artist James Green creates works that challenge conceptions of beauty, showcasing a thick impasto. Expect obscured faces, bold colour, and compositions that seem poised to jump out of the canvas.

Talented Art Fair, Friday 6-Sunday 8 March at Old Truman Brewery (just off Brick Lane). Tickets to Friday's Private View cost £8 and can be purchased here.
