The works span photography, painting, sculpture, video, ceramics and taxidermy, and prices start from just £50. Known for its engaging visitor experience, The Other Art Fair is certainly hip - expect appearances from a distinguished guest artist, DJ sets, theatre performances, and good food and 'craft' beer on site.

This year's highlights include a series of immersive installations. We're especially excited about the bright graphic entrance from multi award-winning artist Morag Myerscough and a neon bar installation complete with oh-so instagrammable exotic plants, a swing and a signature cocktail to bring Fei Alexeli's 'No Bad Days' artwork to life.
There's a Big Issue stand selling a selection of original works by artists and vendors, with at least 50% of profits going towards tackling homelessness. The ever popular Art on a Postcard returns, giving us the chance to buy a small work from a big artist (last year's participants included Paula Rego and Turner Prize winner Lubaina Himid).
And for those who want their love art to go skin deep, The Other Art Fair guest artist and feminist spokesperson BlueStone Babe is flying over from Brooklyn to tattoo a series of designs using a handpoke technique. Tattoo slots are available on a first come, first served basis with no pre-booking required.
If you're struggling to navigate London's art fairs, trust us that this one is worth the hype: great art at a small price, without the industry bluster. Nothing quite beats the artist telling you about the piece themselves.
