The UK’s epic art fair for emerging artists is coming to Cape Town!

We love to see artists given their breaks in the art world, and that’s why the exciting news of StART’s art fair in Cape Town is a thrill for both art lovers and local artists alike.

UK-based StART Art Global is the catalyst that showcases emerging artists’ works, connecting them with collectors and global audiences. Founded in 2014, StART has claimed its seat at the table in the art world. Last year, it showcased over 70 artists representing 25 countries at the renowned Saatchi Gallery in London. 

Cape Town will soon see the flair of the fair in March at the 131A Gallery in the heart of Cape Town’s art world, Woodstock.

“We’re incredibly excited about this collaboration with StART as we embrace any opportunity to gain further exposure for our talented artists internationally, and in the current economic climate in SA we see this as an absolute necessity,” says Gallery 131A’s co-director Brett Bellairs as per Art Times. 

Some of the artists we can look forward to seeing celebrated are the likes of Marie Jordan, the photographer whose visuals captivate the outer gaze as well as the inner eye, and Zubair Mohamed whose artistic spin on fashion pieces is bespoke on all creative levels.

 Other artists that’ll be on exhibition sporting local’s favourites are Christiaan Conradi, Conrad Botes, MJ Lourens as well as Olivia Tech and Michael Amery.
