Yesterday I visited the "Downtown Fair" @ Downtown Armory, a place in the Flatiron District, Manhattan (downtownfair). The host also produces the famous art fair "Art Miami". The show runs through Sunday May 11 (General Admission 12pm-6pm).
It was much fun. According to the host´s website nearly 600 artists from over 35 countries are on display. The show focuses on "modern and contemporary works" (no idea what is the difference).
I saw works by established artists like Warhol, Lichtenstein & Botero but also from unknown and uprising creators. I was impressed by the diversity, flamboyance and briskness of paintings, collages, video images and sculptures.
As usual, the event drew an interesting crowd of art collectors, spectators & bohemians. Watching them was almost much as fun as viewing the paintings and sculptures.
Here is a collection of my favorites. Let the pictures speak for themselves. Enjoy!
