Art13 Olympia, London FairI have a new found interest and drum roll please… it’s attending art fairs! Yesterday I attended the fabulous new modern and contemporary art fair Art13, held in the Olympia Grand Hall.

Art13 Olympia London Art FairHaving recently attended the London Art Fair 2013 in Islington, which presented some of the great names of 20th century modern British art, as well as other contemporary art through the 130+ galleries featured, I couldn’t help but compare that experience to Art13. Although I enjoyed the Islington London Art Fair, Art13 somehow felt much more exciting, impressive and international with artwork from some of the world’s leading galleries on display from 30 countries.

The fair felt open and very inviting, allowing a seamless flow of cohesive aesthetics, ideas and trendy visitors. It was such a beautiful atmosphere!

Art13 Olympia London Art FairI thought the fair was absolutely terrific and I certainly wouldn’t mind spending yet another day exploring the many artworks on show in finer detail and discussing them with their obliging gallery representatives. March 3rd is the last day of the 3 day long fair so be sure to take the time to stop by for a visit!
