Top 10 Artworks from Affordable Art Fair 2016

Hi there, yesterday I went to the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea Park. I’ve been to this event a couple of times before and I always find it very inspiring to discover new artist and (perhaps) finding some nice pieces to decorate my house.

Here’s is my top 10:

1. Patrick Ybartina |  New York and London 

A stunning piece of art, by the Canadian artist Patrick Ybartina. The London one is my favorite, the light is beautifully balanced. It was the last piece I saw and it was love at first sight (unfortunately, the price was way over my budget 😦 )

2. Eline de Jonge | Shadows Paris

Lovely paintings by the dutch artist Eline de Jonge, I was captured by the different point of view. Perfectly balanced compositions between movement and quietness, light and shadows. The dynamic city scenes have a great sense of calmness. I think the Paris shadows one will look perfect in my bedroom 🙂

3. Antoinette Momtahan | Prints

Antoinette’s prints are beautifully simple, delicate and balanced. Almost a modern version of Kandinsky. The kind of print that will look beautiful in any house.

4. Grant Smith | Jump

I love photography like this one from the Australian bphotographer Grant Smith. His work has a graphic, conceptual, cinematic identity. This photo captures that perfect, calm moment before the splash, the contrast between light and shadows is also magic.

5. Kaija Bulbrook | Contemporary Art

Kent based artist Kaija Bulbrook is a master of composing different shapes and pattern using amazing well-balanced tones and colors. Bold artworks for sure, I love the grey-orange-black combination.
6. Morten Lassen – Interference

Another beautiful abstract work by the Danish painter Morten Lassen. I saw some of his work at the Rebecca Hossack art gallery here in London before and I still think they’re really beautiful pieces, they somehow remind me of Gerhard Richter.

7. Barbara Macfarlane | Red London

I have to say that I have an addiction for architectural/urban artworks, so I was really drawn to this one. Barbara Macfarlane is a talented landscape artist, with her works she reveals the essence of urban spaces. ( have a look on her website at the Venice, Paris and NY collections, you will be spoiled for choice…).

This beautiful painting by UK artist Maggie Jones really evokes the feeling of being inside a forest.

9. Bui Van Hoan | Dawn

Bui Van Hoan is a master of light. Those very peaceful and Zen-like paintings details seem to appear as you contemplate it.

10.  Rachel Tighe | London Landmarks

Between pop art and architectural urban sketches those bold paintings are colorful and vibrant, and they’ll look perfect on any white wall (prices are quite ‘affordable’ too). Rachel Tighe has got a collection of different cities, definitely an artist who is worth having a look at.

  1. Antoinette Momtahan’s new work has a precise clarity which we all seek to enhance our natural simplicity in our homes.
    Such defined shapes offer a nod indeed to Kandinsky however they allow the seer to abstract their own creative mind journey…..simply beauty to ase our minds.
