Alongside over 100 international galleries and 1000s of original artworks at affordable prices (from £100 – £6,000) the Fair will host yoga and breath work classes, therapeutic workshops, immersive art, and relaxation classes throughout the week.

The Hampstead Fair 2019 will shine a spotlight on ten of London’s most exciting art students in a display curated by Made in Arts London, including Chelsea College of Art student Sebastian Chaumeton. Ahead of the Fair, Chaumeton will be creating one of his giant murals on Hampstead Heath, inviting locals on their weekend walks to give suggestions on what he should paint.

Affordable Art Fair X Balance
Balance magazine has joined forces with Hampstead 2019. Visitors are invited to meditate in their specially curated space with artworks designed to both relax and rejuvenate. Alongside inspirational artworks, visitors will enjoy bespoke yoga classes by wellbeing guru Hannah Barrett (@yoga_girl_london) and breathwork classes by expert teacher Richie Bostock (@thebreathguy).

Hampstead 2019 Artist-in-Residence
The Hampstead Fair has announced multimedia artist Jonathan Hillson as its artist-inresidence. His immersive video installation We are human looks at the mass migrant caravan that walked from South America to the US border last year. Jonathan will look into the stories behind those individuals, from all different walks of life, be that gender, sexuality, religion or viewpoint.

Rubbish Portraits
In a first for Affordable Art Fair, illustrator Lucie Sheridan will set up her magic photobooth. For just £20, a visitor will have a bespoke portrait drawn live by Lucie, whose signature style has seen her work with the likes of Habitat, Penguin and Waterstones. The Fair will show visitors how best to achieve wellbeing through art in a packed programme of workshops and talks.
