Roy’s People Art Fair is back with a new focus: mental health awareness in young people. This year’s autumn instalment will take place over four days, featuring pieces from 80 carefully selected artists at London’s landmark building – OXO Tower Wharf.
Founders Roy Tyson and Sam Peacock will be exhibiting alongside special guest Andrea Tyrimos, who will be creating a unique portrait and audio documentary of the life of an ex-Centrepoint resident. In a similar style to her 2017 exhibition ‘Bipolar Picasso,’ the portrait will be accompanied by an audio piece, revealing the spoken words and innermost thoughts of the sitter, through which the visitor becomes fully immersed in a sensory exploration of the mind.
Other highlights include:
■ My Dog Sighs Installation- curated by Tyson, Peacock and My Dog Sighs situated in the foyer of the fair
■ Fine art printmaking studio Hippo Screenprinters – live demonstrating the art of screen printing with exclusive releases by a number of special guests
■ GreatArt and London Drawings – host FREE Art Workshops all weekend including: kids creatives, life drawing, sketching, 3D Pen drawing, and more.
Roy’s People Art Fair is on at Bargehouse Oxo Tower Wharf, SE1 from 1st – 4th November 2018. Times: 12 – 6pm. Admission: Free.
