Affordable Art Fair Hampstead: 6 artists causing a stir this year
Spotlighting fresh faces on the cutting-edge contemporary art scene, Affordable Art Fair has made a name for itself as London's pre-eminent fair for discovering new talent.
Following the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead this May, these are the young emerging artists to watch now.
From record-breaking auction sales figures, to year-long waiting lists at the most coveted pottery classes across the capital, ceramics are currently experiencing somewhat of a boom in London. With younger collectors investing in hand-made, one-of-a-kind pieces that showcase technical skill and the making process more than ever before, now's the time to spot the artists challenging the traditions of an old medium.
Embracing this new era of ceramics is St Martin's graduate Nam Tran. Rejecting methods of mass-production in favour of hand-crafted techniques, Tran creates delicate artworks that celebrate the beauty of imperfection. See Nam Tran in action at Affordable Art Fair Hampstead during his series of pottery workshops hosted by the artist himself.
