The Artists Project offers an overview of the recent works by local and international artists. This is an excellent opportunity to meet up with an old-time favorite, or chance upon a new eye-candy. Not to miss is the Untapped Artists section, where emerging artists showcase their works in a competition.
The artist is in – at their booth or creating live at the Art Battle at the end of the hall. Each artist’s booth is akin to an alien planet, populated by art. The more colorful the better, to attract the public’s attention. All the more fitting that this event should take place in the coldest of winter, when the eye yearns for vivid motifs. In this flock of birds of paradise, which is the most precious?
