The Other Art Fair

My friend Rohan was an exhibitor at The Other Art Fair, a new show next to The OXO Tower in Southbank.
The websites description: 'London's newest art fair that provides a fresh, open platform to connect art buyers of all tastes and experience directly with young, emerging artists before they are signed.'

The exhibition was nuts! I went along to help him out for a day, it was more inspirational than I could have imagined and I met some wicked artists and saw some brilliant work, here I've included photographs of the stuff which I found most attractive and pretty or conceptually interesting. This post would be ridiculously long if I stuck in all 200 odd images...

I have included the link to the website although it is no longer on.

Tahnee Lonsdale

She was one of my favourites, her use of colour and marks combined with her abstract distinctive style really amazed me! I fell in love with her paintings...

work in progress

I've been working on layout ideas and exploring imagery through drawing for the fairy tale book. I want to capture a dark atmosphere with a particular pace that can be followed in a way that sets the scene and has the sense of being followed, watched and deceived. Which is exactly what happens to the character, Little Red Riding Hood in the story...

Here's some shiz...

Towards the end of the book where the wolf munches down on the girl and is happily fed for days on end from his grand feast...(need to scan in better quality images and remove the bits that look rubbish)
