"We see ourselves as part of the democratization of art and want to show people that art can be fun," said Oliver Lähndorf, Director of the Affordable Art Fair.

Background to Affordable Art Fair 

The fair showcases paintings by contemporary artists and photographers. The exhibitors include galleries such as the Dutch Post Modern Collection or Germany's Uhlig Gallery, newcomers such as Timo von Eicken, Christoph Rode or Josephine Sagna, and world-renowned greats such as Gerhard Richter, Rosemarie Trockel, Günther Uecker, David Hockney and Tony Cragg. The Affordable Art Fair was launched in London in 1998 by gallery owner Will Ramsey as a new kind of art fair - open, low-threshold, and affordable. Meanwhile, Ramsey Fairs are now among the world's largest art fair companies and also organize the British Art Fair and the Volta Fairs.
