The Affordable Art Fair

The Affordable Art Fair was back in Hampstead this weekend to showcase thousands of artworks selected by galleries from across the world. With artworks ranging from £50 to £7,500, the Affordable Art Fair stands apart from other art fairs with its accessible price points. It provides the opportunity to browse and enjoy contemporary art of all mediums by talented and emerging artists. As we explored the fair, we spotted pieces by several members of the Art Republic community. If you couldn’t make it to the fair, don’t worry – here’s a round-up of the fantastic artists and artworks that we loved and that you can buy on Art Republic.

BABAK GANJEI - VIEW COLLECTION

Artist and illustrator Babak Ganjei’s witty, unpredictable, and hilarious confessional artworks reveal his inner monologue. Babak says of his text pieces, “The work doesn’t take itself seriously, but I take nonsense very seriously.” Exuding a sense of immediacy, Babak’s work is unflinchingly and refreshingly honest. It is often self-referential, breaking down the fourth wall. Babak’s fans can rejoice because we have some new and exclusive pieces coming very soon – so stay tuned.

SARA POPE - VIEW COLLECTION

What could be better than one of Sara Pope’s iconic and seriously seductive lips? A series of them! Sara perfectly captures the glamour and power of the lips and mouth with artworks inspired by the Haute Couture fashion and beauty trends.

THE CAMERON TWINS - VIEW COLLECTION

How cool are these tarot-style screenprints by identical twin collaborative duo the Cameron Twins? We are thrilled this pair of artists are joining the Art Republic community. Keep your eyes peeled for their Art Republic debut – we will be releasing four gorgeously vivid hand-pulled screenprints next week.

HANNAH GILSON - VIEW COLLECTION

We were blown away by the beautiful hand-painted frames of Hannah Gilson’s artworks. We have some equally gorgeous collages of music icons on our site – head to Hannah’s collection now to check them out – prepare to be starstruck!

EMMA REYNOLDS - VIEW COLLECTION

Emma Reynolds’ dreamy scenes, featuring colour schemes that ignite a sense of nostalgia in the viewer, celebrate the beauty of nature and cities. Emma lives in London and many of her works represent the calm and serene spaces that are to be found within the hectic bustle of the city.

DAVID STUDWELL - VIEW COLLECTION

It was impossible to miss David Studwell’s twinkling diamond dust artworks. We can’t stress how dazzling they are in real life – wow. David explores the lives of the rich and famous and the honest way that he depicts celebrities, in either the high or low moments of their careers, makes us feel as though we have discovered something new about the icons.

RICHARD BERNER - VIEW COLLECTION

Richard Berner’s pieces are constructed of his countless figures and characters, which he calls ‘Champs.’ Richard’s ‘The Stolen Kiss’ re-imagines Gustav Klimt’s ‘The Kiss’ and took the artist several weeks to complete. Look closer and you will see the funny champs come together to create the image.

BONNIE & CLYDE - VIEW COLLECTION

We’ve been huge fans of Bonnie & Clyde’s work for a while and how it immerses the viewer in beautiful and bizarre urban landscapes. When a collection of artworks is displayed together, the result has a big impact. We loved the curation of Bonnie & Clyde’s pieces at the Affordable Art Fair, leading the eye from the smaller and more delicate pieces to the large, incredibly impressive prints.

MARIA RIVANS - VIEW COLLECTION

Another Brighton-based collage artist, Maria Rivans’ works looked unsurprisingly fantastic framed and up on the walls. There was a selection of Maria’s iconic and exotic female portraits. Composed of a diverse range of ephemera, Maria's collages allude to the fragmented nature of the world that the art arises from.
