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 😦 )

Gagliardi Art Gallery, London
509 King’s Road, London

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 🙂

Villa del Arte Amsterdam
Nieuwe Spiegelstraat, 38
1017 DG, Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

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.

245A Coldharbour Lane

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.
28 Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia,
London W1T 2NA, UK
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…).

8. Maggie Jones | Into the Wood


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

Hop Pocket Craft Centre,
Bishops Frome,
Worcester WR6 5BT 


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.

23 Yong Siak Street,
Tiong Bahru,
Singapor 168652


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.

  2. 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.
