Last week we visited the New Artist Fair, which specialises in exhibiting emerging contemporary artists. Located at the well-known Candid Galleries just off the bustling Islington High Street, it allows visitors to enjoy more than 1000 original painting and prints starting from £20. The New Artist Fair’s goal is to make viewing, buying and selling artwork affordable, easy and interesting for all parties involved. Check out our favourite artists and links to their websites/pages below!
We are starting off with Gerry Buxton, a photographer, illustrator and print maker, who finds his passion in printmaking. All of his prints are based on his original photos of London’s most iconic buildings.
Our next favourite artist is George Benn with his newest collection named “eARTh”. He conveys today’s world’s problems in his witty illustrations. It is always nice when a piece of art is not only enjoyable but has a meaning behind it.
Mick and Karen Thurman are landscape photographers. They are constantly inspired by the natural beauty they see around; their mission is to use photography to showcase as much of it as it is possible.
These intricate pieces of art are done by Alexander Korzer-Robinson, an UK-based artist, whose work transforming antiquarian books has brought him international acclaim.
Simona Visan says: “My Art is a balance between the anonymity of life, the disappointments and defeats versus immense joy and happiness”. We personally were highly attracted to her works by their fluidity, colourfulness and intrigue.
Nathalie Vergeres creates this unique pattern with ink. She likes the density of colour and form. We found her work really poetical, airy and calming all at the same time. We also thought that these design would look great on clothes.
Sandra Haney creates unique or small limited edition linocut/woodcut prints and etchings. She often uses Japanese paper and water based inks.
Uriya Jurik is a Kazakhstan born painter, who specialises in tribal art. Her pictures convey Kazakh heritage by depicting national costumes, jewellery and scenery. Her works have a cultural message but still leave space for you imagination. Intimate scenes emerge viewers into the intricate atmosphere of Kazakh culture.
Komal Madar works intuitively because that helps her to create her most exciting work. With her paintings Komal wants to evoke emotions in viewers by using different colours, textures and techniques. The range of her works is quite extensive but that what makes it surprising and fresh.
Veronica Gudmundson finds her passion in Swedish forests and northern lights. Her work also incorporates cosmology. When we saw her paintings, they reminded us of the scenes we see while meditating. Her pictures are very calming and soothing.
