Fashion picks at the Affordable Art Fair – the best looks beautifully illustrated

25 March, 2014

This past Friday, at the Arty-licious evening during the Affordable Art Fair, hundreds of chic art lovers convened to gather inspiration, drink cocktails and pick up some new artworks for their homes. So I stopped by, pen and notebook in hand, to illustrate some of the best looks from the evening and to find out what was on everyone’s to-buy list.fur-carolWho: Carol, marketing professional.

Favourite art work: The serene pastel portraits by Japanese artist Tatsuhito Horikoshi at Ohshima Fine Art.luluWho: Lulu, works in finance.

Favourite art work: For the print obsessed artist, Emma Hack was on site with a live art demonstrate. She painted a model’s body to camouflage her into an elaborate floral backdrop… talk about impressive! (Check out her work in the Gotye music video, Somebody That I Used to Know)graphicairlinesWho: Tat and Vi, artists of Graphic Airlines.

Favourite art work: 2Shywashere, the Parisian artist represented by Mr Chow & Associates. The conceptual graphic canvases in neon were a perfect fit for Vi’s bright blue pencil skirt and this art duo’s namesake.

Favourite art work: Joel Moens de Hase‘s risque photo-mosaics at Damina Gallery. This fascinating and provocative mosaic is made up of intimate snapshots of women’s bodies. Thousands of them are stitched together to create the elaborate, final portrait by the Belgium artist.heart-blackMy pick!
The giant black and white portrait of glamorous Chinese star Fan Bing Bing by photographer Kenneth Willardt at Vogelsang Art Gallery. Although it might have been just a little too big for both my wallet and my apartment’s tiny old elevator… !
