As discussion continues over how soon and how far economies around the world open up further, London’s first in-person art fair of the year is taking place.
Saatchi’s ‘The Other Art Fair’ showcases the work of more than 110 emerging artists and provides them a platform to sell directly to buyers in-person and online.
The event founder said, “Honestly I am so excited to be back. For the artists, it is great because they get to meet their collectors face to face, they get to build relationships with them and sell directly to them and that is what is unique about this art fair compared to others where it is typically the gallery, the sales guy, selling the works.”
The pandemic forced many art fairs to cancel and galleries to close, at least temporarily. So business moved online.
He noted, “The reason why people are excited about buying online is they are sitting at home, looking at empty walls, looking for inspiration, and looking for investment as well.”
