This year, the beginning of Spring in NYC was noteworthy not only for the arrival of Winter Storm Toby, but also for the kick off of the Affordable Art Fair — an event which we traditionally condense with a recap of the coolest Pink Artworks of the fair. Let’s get to it!
As usual, the Affordable Art Fair lived up to its reputation as the place to see, buy and be inspired by thousand of pieces of art — including unique sculpture, painting, photography and beyond — in a price range to fit every budget. While a few old favorite galleries were absent this year, a few others were back again, and a few established their presence at the AAFNYC for the first time, which kept the art fresh and exciting for everyone.
Greeting everyone at the entrance to the fair was Chiefs & Spirits International Art, located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Chiefs & Spirits showcased a collection of very Spring-like wall sculptures by German artist Stefan Gross. These works resemble carpets of tiny blossoms and are, appropriately, entitled Bloomers.
These pieces are priced at $7,500 each.
Pop Artist Matthew Lapenta continues with his signature Emoji sculpture series with this piece found at Axiom Contemporary, located in Santa Monica, CA.
The Gift by George Charriez, $4,500, at Connect Contemporary in Atlanta.
Brooklyn’s Ground Floor Gallery represents many up-and-coming artists. This lovely abstract work is called Pink Dreams (Neon Dusk) (2018), by artist Rhia Hurt ($775).
The gallery owner also had on these gorgeous hot pink pumps!
Pink Snow Cephalopod (2018), By Jenny Brown, $250, also at Ground Floor Gallery.
Nothing says “It’s Spring, Bitches” quite like flowering tree, amiright?
This piece is called Fushia Spray in Two Parts — an exploding spray-paint can encased in an acrylic glass block — by Francois Bel. Priced at $5,600 from Galerie Virginie Barrou Planquart, Paris.
Jealous Gallery of London, UK was back in action at the AAFNYC after taking last year off, and boy were they missed! We love their fun pop culture / pop art posters!
Decadence (Pink) By Sara Pope, $1440 Framed from Jealous Gallery.
Apologies for the wonky angles, but it was the only way to get the shot without a reflection in the glass!
