Come and see thousands of original art pieces here
Welcome to The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art, Australia's leading fair to meet and buy art direct from the very best emerging artists.

This is an art fair for a new generation of art buyers! Do you find your walls are rather empty? Do you have room for just a few more sitting next to those you already have? If this is the case, The Other Art Fair is a fabulous place to go to see new art - and a lot of it!

The Other Art Fair is a leading artist fair for art lovers to meet and here you can buy direct from the very best new and undiscovered artists.

The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art gives you the opportunity to meet a curated selection of over 91 independent artists. You will be able to look through thousands of pieces to suit every budget and all this in the one place!

With prices starting from as little as $100, this is an art fair for everyone. Whether you're a first-time art buyer, a seasoned collector, curator, investor, gallery owner, art lover or anything in between, you are sure to find something to add to your collection or to start hanging those paintings on the wall!

Plus this will be a uniquely immersive experience with live DJ sets, event tours, live art activations, performances, street food and a fully-stocked bar. The Other Art Fair is a unique opportunity to enjoy a cultural experience easily accessible from Melbourne's city centre.

There are fairs of this type right around the world - in the UK, US and Australia. Each edition of The Other Art Fair showcases work by a selection of talented artists. These artists have been handpicked by a committee of art world experts.

This will be on 2nd to 5th May 2019 at The Facility, 2 Chelmsford Street Kensington. The tickets cost from $20 and you can book them at this Eventbrite link.

The Artists
There are so many artists who will be exhibiting their works here and some of these include:

Mandy Schoene-Salter is from Katoomba. She is an artist working in urban art, photography and community art.

Mandy studied photography at the Nepean Arts and Design Centre and took part in a public art workshop led by New York artist Kendal Henry.

Jenn Huang is a Chinese-Australian artist based in Melbourne. Jenn works mainly with graphite and pastel on paper. Her drawings reflect concepts of growth, decay, disease and mortality. Hers is a very different type of art which is often morbid. She does, however, manage to turn them into something beautiful and hauntingly interesting!

Rachaerl Hooper is a Melbourne-based artist who does contemporary still life objects and mixes them with landscapes and abstract elements.

Rachael has exhibited extensively at galleries and Artist Run Initiatives nationally since 2001. She has been represented by Australian Galleries and was on the board of ARIs for many years. She has also been short-listed for several prizes including the Arthur Guy Memorial Prize 2017.

George Rowbottom was born in North Wales and educated in the North of England. He grew up in London where he studied art for five years, graduating from Leeds with a 1st. Class Honours BA in Fine Art (Painting).

He was commissioned to paint murals on the walls of Elton John's record company! And that led to a life in rock'n' roll and album sleeve design for everyone from pop-icons Elton John and Queen to new-wave rockers signed to Stiff Records.
