THE AFFORDABLE ART FAIR 2013



 

“What!? Another post about yet another arty, design-led fair?” 



If that’s what just went through your mind, then perhaps A-Gent of Style is sadly not the right blog for you. Because A-Gent of Style relishes any most opportunities to embrace the decorative arts, high and low, whether they go under the hammer or are simply affordable.




Starting tomorrow in Battersea Park, The Affordable Art Fair is the easiest and most enjoyable way to view and buy art from more than 100 galleries under one roof (114 to be precise this year). With everything for sale between £40 and £4,000, and a fresh and friendly approach to contemporary art, paintings, original artist-made prints, sculpture and photography are all on show. Whether you are looking for artwork that is traditional or contemporary, humorous or edgy, by a famous name or an undiscovered talent, there really is something for everyone.











The Affordable Art Fair
keeps spreading its wings and is now present in all corners of the world. If the answer to “And where do you actually live?” is “Well, depends on the season, dahling!’ then you can catch the fair almost wherever you are, whenever you want.






FRIEZE LONDON 2013






Design and art fairs. They are just like buses in London, you wait a while and then a few turn up at the same time. And aren’t we just fortunate to live at such an exhilarating crossroads for creative people?

PAD is now officially opened to the public ( it’s that good A-Gent of Style went on Monday AND Tuesday) and another cultural event is opening its doors today.



Frieze London is one of the contemporary art events of the year where visitors are able to see and buy art by over 1,000 of the world’s leading artists; they can also experience Frieze Projects, the fair’s unique and critically acclaimed programme of artist commissions and Frieze Talks, a prestigious programme of debates, panel discussions and keynote lectures. Frieze London is designed by architects Carmody Groarke and housed in a bespoke structure in Regent’s Park. This year the Frieze Sculpture Park will include works from both Frieze London and Frieze Masters with some of the most acclaimed contemporary sculptors alongside historical pieces from the medieval period through to the present day.
The fair ends on Sunday evening.












PAD LONDON 2013





One of A-Gent of Style‘s favourite times of the year has arrived. And we are not talking birthdays or Christmas here. We are talking ‘PAD time’.





The Pavilion of Art and Design celebrates its 7th anniversary in London this year and returns to Berkeley Square to dazzle and inspire us once again
with the crème de la crème of objets from the world of 20th C and contemporary design, decorative art, photography and jewellery.




A roster of sixty highly respected galeristes and antique dealers from all around the world will showcase iconic and coveted pieces. A-Gent of Style is already looking forward to seeing the stunning signature room-like vignettes, created and curated by the exhibitors, that have now been inextricably associated with PAD.
Rather than looking like sterile showroom stands, theses decorative panoramas resemble apartments with astonishing combinations of wares interacting and living harmoniously next to each other. Eclecticism, authenticity and connoisseurship are key at the boutique fair where collectors, interiors specialists, design practitioners, art consultants, museum experts and the public gather to share their passion for the decorative arts.





There is an indisputable youthful, dynamic yet serious quality to the fair that makes PAD so special and inspiring. A-Gent of Style has his favourites but is also looking forward to discovering new and returning participants like
Gallery Matthieu Richard.

Will a Polar Bear be spotted this year at PAD?! All will be revealed this evening at the Collector’s Preview.
