The Affordable Art Fair is back and bigger than ever. The annual event that will take place from May 23-25 at the F1 Pit Building marks a major milestone in the 15 year history of the brand. Founded in London, the fair aims to make art accessible to everyone. The pressure-free environment invites seasoned collectors, first-time buyers and art lovers to find their perfect piece.

This year’s Affordable Art Fair boasts 82 exhibiting galleries from all over the world and over 600 contemporary artists. The fair features works from both emerging artists and established names, ensuring that there are works of art for everyone. It features up-and-coming international names such as Yang Peng of China and Chitmanee Chongwitookit of Thailand, as well as emerging local talent Don Low and pioneer artist Goh Beng Kwan. In addition, the Official Furniture Partner, Fred Lives Here, offered two to four artists an opportunity to work their magic on Fred’s furniture to create a new collection, of which selected works will be featured at the fair.
