Over four days Moniker shines a spotlight on a generation of artists influenced by the urban environment and its related subcultures, showcasing established and emerging artists along with a creative programme of events including live painting, talks, tours, film screenings and exclusive art releases.
Renowned British performance artist Shaun Caton (UK) has presented some 280 performances in major galleries, museums and festivals worldwide since the early 1980’s. He calls his performances ‘living breathing images’ and often paints/draws during a self induced trance.

My practice is based around drawing and tracing movements in city space. It involves a range of processes in order to sample and form interventions within global cities.
The show represents some of the best of emerging art in London, each of the artists on display hail from different backgrounds, all equally prestigious and full of promise.
FAD has been running interviews with each of the artists leading up to the show at The Other Art Fair in April 2013 and below is the final one with Rob Bellman.

I always begin with the problem of how colour can be defined, or not, in language. In response to this problem I often write stories that deliberately mess with the many meanings inherent in a single colour.
My aim is to photograph the soul of my subjects, people and things. My aim is to wake up the viewer, to make him ask questions about himself and the meaning of life, to make him see beauty in ordinary things. To make him aware of things
