Here I am enjoying a cocktail near one the incredible pieces on display as part of the Affordable Art Fair New York event. You had to take your time with this piece. It’s compiled with images upon images subtly hidden within the frame. Brilliant. Unfortunately for me i was not able to capture the tittle and artist.  My poor dying camera.  
Affordable Art Fair
The Affordable Art Fair celebrates the idea that art is for everyone, offering original artwork priced from $100 – $10,000, with half of the work under $5,000. A global brand, the Fair now takes place in Amsterdam, Bristol, Brussels, Hamburg, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Milan, New York, Seattle, Singapore and Stockholm. 

This past Thursday, September 26, i was invited to attend the kickoff event for The Affordable Art Fair program held the W Hotel New York.  It was a very beautiful and relaxed evening where media and artist alike got to mingle, discuss their work, and enjoy some of the outstanding photography that were displayed throughout the room.  I love the idea of making great contemporary art affordable and available for the general public. I myself fell in love with a few pieces I wouldn’t mind having in my possession. I was quite partial to the piece Fearless Passion by Thomas Barbey.
The fall edition of The Fair will run from October 3rd – 6th again returning to The Tunnel.  There will be a private viewing held on October 2nd.  I look forward to seeing more of all these incredible work and perhaps this time around even getting a chance to speak to some of the artist.  I would to learn what inspires them.
Here are some of images of the evening i managed to capture.  My poor poor camera has been a bit temperamental lately so forgive the quality.
This final image has absolutely nothing to do with The Fair. This is actually at the entrance of the W Hotel and i simply could not resist taking a photo with this rasta plant. Ha!
