6 to see at The Other Art Fair London Summer Edition.

6 to see at The Other Art Fair London – Since Ryan Stanier founded The Other Art Fair (TOAF) 12 years ago as an artist-fronted alternative to the traditional gallery-led art fair model, it has become a fixture on the international art world calendar, and now travels to the USA and Australia as well as hosting summer and winter editions in London. As a curator, I have come across many exciting artists at the start of their careers and featured them in exhibitions. 

TOAF London’s summer edition takes over West Handyside Canopy in Kings Cross, adjacent to Central Saint Martins, another hotbed of upcoming talent.  Here are a few top picks. 

Katasi Kulubya 

Katasi Kulubya is an interdisciplinary visual artist and senior interaction designer at Google. As an artist, Katasi works across different mediums including digital collages, large-scale wooden sculptures, and abstract geometric paintings. @katasihk 

Kate Macevics 

Katalin Macevics (Kate Matsevych) is an artist and illustrator based in London, UK. She grew up in Ukraine where she graduated from School of Fine Arts. At TOAF she is exhibiting a new series of portraits created using Augmented Reality.  @kate_matsevych

Yurim Gough

Yurim Gough is a ceramic visual artist originating from Korea, a country with a historic tradition of ceramics. She started out as a fashion designer, designing shoes in Seoul, Tokyo and London, before becoming a fine artist and settling in Cambridge. Yurim explains: “My art practice explores humans’ complex emotions, different feelings and thoughts; it is concerned expressing the subconscious mind in my artworks.” 

Yurim is exhibiting a new series of ceramic hat sculptures, created in collaboration with celebrated milliner Victoria Grant.  @yurimgough

Oliver Mayhall 

Oliver Mayhall is a portrait and fine art photographer based in London. Oliver’s abstract and surrealist work is an exploration of the thoughts and experiences gained from the world around him. Using both digital and film, and utilising props, lighting, and textures, he creates captivating and playful imagery that poses questions. His work is constantly evolving through experimentation, and is often shot in black and white. @oliver.mayhall

Kristjana S Williams

Iceland-born artist Kristjana S Williams studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins and quickly gained critical acclaim as Creative Director of Beyond the Valley for 8 years. In 2011 she began creating fine art pieces, illustrating books, designing interior items and more. Her designs are inspired by nature and her technique involves digitally and physically layering nature upon nature to mirror the symmetry in all living things. Each piece is its own magical universe of exotic botanicals and vibrant animals, and her work can be found at The Victoria & Albert Museum. @kristjanaswilliams

Emily Carew Woodard

Emily Carew Woodard’s enchanting oil paintings evoke a bygone era of children’s fairytales, in the genre of celebrated illustrators Quentin Blake and Maurice Sendak, whose works she has exhibited alongside.  Woodard was born in Fowey in Cornwall and moved to London to study illustration at the London College of Communication.  She works closely with the Roald Dahl team and has worked with major brands including The National Trust and Alexander McQueen.  @ECWOODARD.STUDIO
