UAL talent at Affordable Art Fair 2018
Hampstead Heath, 10-13 May 2018
Affordable Art Fair returns to Hampstead Heath from 10-13 May, thrilling the capital with thousands of affordable original contemporary artworks from UK and international artists. These include twelve diverse and distinctive UAL talents taking part through Made in Arts London, a not for profit enterprise which helps UAL artists to promote and sell their work.
The partnership with Affordable Arts Fair Hampstead began six years ago to ensure that UAL artists starting out on their careers are represented at this leading retail event, where they can talk to galleries and collectors and create a market for their pieces.
Read on for the UAL artists on show and the UAL programme organised by Made in Arts London, including special tours of the UAL artists’ work, a panel event and 3D family portrait scanning workshops by one of our artists.
