With the Indian summer continuing in London, my partner and I decided to make the most of the weather and have a day out at the 20|21 British Art Fair. After a light lunch at Carluccio’s in South Kensington we walked to the Royal College of Art, soaking up the beautiful Kensington architecture along the way.
I don’t normally drag my partner along to these sorts of exhibitions, as it is not his favourite idea of a day out, but yesterday was an exception to this rule. As a result, my picks from the art fair have, for a change, been slightly influenced by what he liked and commented on. Sometimes we are drawn to the same piece of art, but at other times our tastes are poles apart.
My partner is a massive sports fan, and his enthusiasm definitely rubbed off on me during our fantastic summer of sport here in London. I think my favourite piece in this selection is the first one, as it brings back such wonderful memories of London 2012! I also love the wonderful stylistic lines in this picture. Hopefully you’ll find something that speaks to you in amongst these pieces.
Do any of these pieces move you or draw you in? Make you smile, or bring back happy memories?
