So, following the success of 8 previous shows in London, fair director Ryan Stanier took the show on the road to the beautiful city of Bristol. And what an inspired decision that turned out to be.


I don’t think I’ve ever been to Bristol, at least not as an adult, but rest assured I’ll be back! What a fantastic laid back city it is. Similar to Brighton (where I live) in many ways with so many things to see and do. It looked fantastic in the summer sun!



WPB Events Ltd built a gallery within a gallery – the renowned Arnolfini to be precise. Originally built as a tea warehouse the Arnolfini Gallery is a lovey bright building situated at the heart of Bristol’s harbourside, it is one of Europe’s leading centres for the contemporary arts. And what contemporary art TOAF bought to the party!!


Over 70 artists, many from Bristol and the local area along with others from across the country were there to show their work to an appreciate and responsive audience. Visitor numbers were far better than expected and there was a steady flow of visitors from the moment the doors opened each day.

A great number of original art works were sold over the weekend and all of the participating artists were delighted with the turnout.


Tracey Emin produced another limited edition print specifically for the show and these sold like hot cakes! Limited edition work from Bristol graffiti legends SickBoy and Inkie also flew out the door but the real success story was the amount of art sold by the 70 up coming artists, all of it different, all of it original and all of it reasonably priced.
