The event is showcasing over 100 new emerging and recently established contemporary artists from the UK and around the world. If you are looking to fall in love with some contemporary art of the highest quality at truly affordable prices, then the New Artist Fair’s ‘Summer Exhibition’ is the art event for you!

The exhibition will be showcasing over 100 unique contemporary UK and International artists, who will all be available to discuss their work with visitors throughout the duration of the event.

The ‘Summer Exhibition’ is different from most other art fairs because it has the feel and look of a gallery layout within the chosen spacious venue along with a very friendly and welcoming vibe. As always there will be examples of all genres and styles of artwork on display and for sale at very affordable prices.

There will even be some live art throughout the weekend, so our visitors can watch the exciting process of art being created. Artwork can be purchased and taken home on the day from the fair or shipping can be arranged through the artists. Also many artists work with buyers to make the perfect individual piece for a certain room or person and commissions like this can also be arranged directly with the artist.

New to the exhibition this year is the New Photography Zone which will be showcasing a variety of photographic artists along with the winners of this year’s PhotoX competition.

There will be 20 re-exhibiting artists and 90 who are completely new to showing, all have been carefully selected to represent their particular genre. Whatever your style or preference, the New Artist Fair promises to have something for everyone.

Anime Architecture: Backgrounds of Japan @ House of Illustration / until 10th September 2017

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: Tue-Sun 10am-6pm

@ House of Illustration, 2 Granary Square, King’s Cross, London N1C 4BH

Tickets: from £7.50 book online

www.houseofillustration.org.uk/whats-on/current-future-events/anime-architecture-backgrounds-of-japan

This is the UK’s first ever exhibition of architectural backdrops from classic anime films. It features over 100 exquisite technical drawings and watercolour illustrations from some of the most influential productions in the genre’s 1990s heyday, including Production I.G’s artwork for Ghost in the Shell. 🎨

The artists were tasked with creating a universe for the director. Their fictional worlds reflected real-life concerns over ruthless urban development and erosion of identity, mirroring the films’ narratives and giving the backgrounds a crucial role to play. Their work has had a defining influence on the style of anime we think of as typical today.

The show includes Hiromasa Ogura’s watercolour paintings for Ghost in the Shell, an anime epic that informed pioneering sci-fi works such as The Matrix and Avatar. Inspired by Asia’s emerging megacities and based on photographs of Hong Kong, Ogura’s work depicts the striking contrast between a derelict Chinese town and looming, faceless skyscrapers.

Everything you’ll see at the Summer Exhibition ☀️😎 represents the art being made today. Expect to find a panorama of art in all media, from painting, printmaking, film and photography to sculpture, architectural works and performance art.

Almost 250 years ago, the RA’s founding members agreed to hold an “Annual Exhibition of Paintings, Sculptures and Designs … open to all Artists”, to help finance the training of young artists in the Royal Academy Schools. Now, nearly 250 years later, ahead of our big anniversary in 2018, Royal Academician Eileen Cooper, explores themes of discovery and new talent from her unique position as Keeper of the Royal Academy – the Academician who is responsible for supporting and guiding the students.

Cooper takes on the mantle of coordinating the largest open submission exhibition in the world, hanging over 1,200 works by artists established and lesser-known in the space of just eight days. Don’t miss work by internationally renowned artists Rosemarie Trockel, Julian Schnabel, Hassan Hajjaj, Secundino Hernández, Isaac Julien, Tomoaki Suzuki, Mark Wallinger and Sean Scully RA, as well as submissions by new Royal Academicians including Gilbert & George and David Adjaye. Other highlights include Yinka Shonibare RA’s six metre high colourful wind sculpture in the RA Courtyard, and Farshid Moussavi RA’s unique focus on construction coordination drawings in the Architecture Gallery.

Jazz Dynamos Quartet perform music from the last 80 years, including the great American songbook – often transforming these and other, less celebrated songs, by mixing classic jazz and swing with bossa, samba, and contemporary pop music – occasionally all at the same time!

With several sold out shows at the world famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club over the last couple of years, plus performances for both British and Hollywood Royalty, their unique and eclectic mix is proving increasingly popular.

Live Music Brunch takes place in the Hall’s Verdi restaurant, which offers casual dining and great music within one of London’s most iconic settings. Your ticket includes a welcome drink, main course and dessert, served with tea or coffee, all accompanied by great live music.
