So now it’s June the festies are properly kicking off every weekend. And first up this Sunday is the always fun Art Car Boot Fair.
However serious you are about collecting, it’s a handy chance to meet and barter with some of the capital’s name artists and grab one-off bargain pieces.
The theme this year is ‘love’, and it features a mix of artists across all disciplines (with many pieces £50 or under), from iconic fashion designer Pam Hogg to awesome street artist Ben Eine, who joins the line-up for the first time with a special edition of his sought after LOVE prints, which he’ll be stencilling live at the event.
Elsewhere look out for artist Nigel Waymouth, selling a 1960s Save The Earth poster, designed in 1967 (the original Summer of Love) with Michael English, that he’ll be signing on the day of the fair.
And The International Neo Not Banksy Anartist Alliance (I.N.N.B.A.A) has instructed the L-13 Light Industrial Workshop to assist the Real Not Banksy Front (R.N.B.F) in the production of a screen print on the theme of love. Try saying that after a couple of pints of Neck Oil.
Finally, at the Jealous London stand Charming Baker will be live drawing Lovebirds, while the Miaz Brothers will be airbrush-finishing their prints in their distinctive style.
There will also be portrait opportunities, mystery prizes, raffles, pass the art parcel, the Secret Midsummer Art Casino plus a host of performances, streetfood and the usual craft beer and gin bars.
Let’s get art-conscious, baby.
