The 15th edition of The Other Art Fair champions the very best emerging and undiscovered art talent

Those looking for an alternative to London’s biggest art fair can head on over to the Old Truman Brewery to meet and buy art directly from some of the finest newfangled art talent. Now in its 15th Edition, The Other Art Fair, is London’s leading event for over 130 pioneering artists to showcase their work. Picked by a committee of art industry experts, the exhibition has been carefully curated to provide art lovers and seasoned collectors the chance to sample a varied and eclectic display of pieces from all over the country.

With artwork priced from £50, the fair allows visitors to discover the art world at introductory prices, encouraging fledgling collectors to support the next generation of contemporary masters. Those on display include Tom White, a Bristolian artists who specialises in urban UK landscapes, paying particular attention to rusty bridges and graffiti. London based artist Charlotte Edey will also be presenting her stylised hand-drawn illustrations, and visitors will be able to purchase her ceramic, concrete and copper creations. Drawing on key themes of fluidity and femininity, her works are said to have a pared back, calming feel.

Visitors will also be able to watch taxidermy classes, live tattooing, 3D printing and immersive theatre.
