The very first edition of the Affordable Art Fair launched in London’s Battersea Park in October 1999. 10,000 art lovers descended upon the fair to browse and buy 1000s of original contemporary paintings, sculptures, photographs and prints in a relaxed and friendly environment. We now welcome over 185,000 art enthusiasts each year to our fairs globally, where they can take their pick from a mix of local, national and international galleries showcasing a wide array of affordable artworks by established artists and rising stars.
We hold fairs in 10 cities around the world including London, New York, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Hamburg, Brussels, Singapore, Milan, Stockholm and Melbourne. Each fair is filled with a creative smorgasbord of artist performances, innovative talks and tours, hands-on workshops, kid’s activities, live music and irresistible restaurants and bars; making them an ideal day out with family and friends. It’s no wonder that since our humble beginnings, over 2.5 million people have visited an Affordable Art Fair, taking home over 500,000 pieces of artwork to loving new homes.
