Affordable art fair is back! with Mr Alan Koh (newly promoted) helming the fair as Fair Director. A great friend of Red Periscope since the first edition of AAF in 2013, we wished Alan our deepest congratulations! This fair is considerably smaller than the November edition but with 30 new galleries, 580 new artists from 40 cities around the world, regulars to the fair will find a good number of fresh works.
New galleries worth checking out are Otomy (fantastic photographic prints), Henri Purwanto’s work at Vin Gallery, Laura Arce Gallery from Argentina, Miru Kim‘s photo at Trunk gallery. We have been following Miru Kim’s photographic work, and is pleasantly surprise to find her work present at AAF. Regular participants like Marisa Keller, Art Porters are also present. Check out Arnaud Nazare’s work at Art Porter, a series of happy hippopotamus and whales. The whales caught our eyes the most, an eclectic work of sensual geometry mix with tear drop emotion, finished off with the most happy of colours. Marisa Keller will also be conducting a series of print making workshops. Check out this link for the schedule.
Being Singapore’s 50 years of independence this year, AAF has also took the opportunity to host a series of art work costing SGD$500 each, the proceeds will go to the charity Playeum. With Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s recent passing, there are also a few interesting pieces of artwork paying tribute to the great man.
Do visit the fair early, it is on until this Sunday, 19 April 2015!

Artist Xie Fan, who exhibits at Art Stage, created pieces specially for Arttag Circle to present at AAF.
We especially like the mood of this piece, oil on silk.
