London: START Art Fair 2016 Highlights

START Art Fair Saatchi 2016

START Art Fair returns to Saatchi Gallery in London for its third edition from 15-18 September 2016. The fair focusses on emerging artists and new art scenes featuring 70 international galleries from London, Seoul, Hong-Kong, Dehli, Cape Town to Taipei and Tokyo.

Amongst the highlights we enjoyed intricate microcosm breathing creature paintings by Mariane, a japanese artist (pictured above) from  Gallery Jin Projects, as well as delicate ceramics by young Korean artist Yunhee Lee (In and Out Art), hyper-realistic sculptures by Carole Feuerman (Aria Art), and a roaring lion made of stainless steel and used tires by Ji Yong Ho (ATELIER AKI – Korea) to name a few.

Amongst the START Projects complementing the fair, visitors could experience ‘Baghdad Manifesto’, the debut London solo exhibition by Iraqi-born artist Mahmoud Obaid, who also curated a presentation of emerging artists who have recently taken part in the Artist in Residence Programme at the Fire Station in Doha, Qatar, titled ‘Identity, Construction & Deconstruction’.
