The very first edition of the Affordable Art Fair took place in London’s Battersea Park in October 1999. Ten thousand art lovers descended upon the fair to browse and buy thousands of original contemporary paintings, sculptures, photographs, and prints in a relaxed and friendly environment. We now hold fairs in 10 cities around the world including London, New York, Hong Kong, Hamburg, Amsterdam, Brussels, Singapore Stockholm, Melbourne, and Sydney. Each year we welcome over 185,000 art enthusiasts to our fairs globally, where they can discover a mix of local, national, and international galleries showcasing a wide array of affordable artworks by established artists and rising stars.
We love nothing more than helping people learn about and fall in love with art, so each of our fairs are 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 2.8 million people have visited an Affordable Art Fair around the world, taking home over half a million pieces of artwork to love new homes.
