This month's art fairs come packed with art for all tastes and wallets.

Art Fairs from New York to Beijing.
- APR 19, 2013

Between the end of April and the month of May the art world agenda has a few art fairs lined up. From Frieze in New York, the artist led The Other Art Fair in London, to Stroke the urban art fair in Munich; this month has something for everyone. 

1. For those always on the pulse of the latest art trends and artists: The Other Art Fair. London, UK

Ryan Stanier, the director of The Other Art Fair, explains the goal of this artist led event, a true gold mine for discovering the future of contemporary art before they sign.

It seemed nonsensical that, as a city, we were producing some of the most exciting creative minds, and yet it was becoming more and more difficult for them to gain recognition.

From this realization The Other Art Fair was born – providing a place for artists to sell work directly to both established and first time buyers and gain exposure to galleries. It was also an opportunity for visitors to gain unprecedented access to the best undiscovered artists.”
