Art fairs certainly provides an insight to trends in painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, installation, photography, video and performance. In addition to trends in mediums, it also allows you to see art from a multitude of cities around the world. An absolute treat!
Some of the trends in medium were intricate ink and graphite
drawings, flashe paint, animation, collage, cutouts. In terms of
sculpture, porcelain, taxidermy, felt and found objects. Some booths
