Out and about: Moniker Art Fair 2014

This week has been a busy week for art in the capital, as the world’s creatives have come together to celebrate and showcase old and new talent. Frieze is obviously one of the biggest and best known art fairs, but there are others that you should take note of. One of those is the Moniker Art Fair. Now in its fifth year, the fair is quickly earning a reputation as one of the most exciting international art fairs and that’s for a reason. Moniker Art Fair now attracts more than 12,000 visitors over its four-day duration, which is no mean feat.

Held from 16-19 October, the fair attracts some of the most talked about artists, galleries and collectors, celebrating a generation of artists creating unique, contemporary art. The programme is varied and so is the art, with everything from more classical pieces to completely off-the-wall. At the Fair you can find portraits, paintings made with razor blades, stunning photographs, street art and even typewriter art. In fact, you’d be hard pressed not to find something you like.

Some of the artists exhibiting include Benjamin Murphy, Keira Rathbone, Boxhead, Mark McClure, Mister E Dawe, Matt Small, Jo Peel and David Shillinglaw. Persoannly I found Keira Rathbone’s exhibition particularly inspiring and unique. What’s more, when I visited on Thursday night, she was producing a new piece right in the middle of the Fair, which was quite impressive.

If you’re still looking for something to do today, I’d highly recommend making your way down. It’s a fun day and who knows, you might even walk away with an amazing new piece of art. In fact, I’m heading there right now for another look, because there are so many more installations I want to take a look at.
