Art Fair Tokyo 2015

Art Fair Tokyo 2015 closed this past Sunday, 22 March 2015, with a record number of 55,000 visitors. This year’s edition of Japan’s largest gallery show featured 140 participating galleries, both domestic and international. 

Located at level B1 at the Tokyo International Forum the fair seemed small from the outside entrance, it was in fact however much larger than it initially appeared, which was of course a pleasant surprise.

On the whole, artwork that was of smaller dimensions, seemed to be the most popular with many pieces being bought and taken to their new homes.

Among some of the pieces that caught my attention was the “Shiny Lotus” by Studo Yoko J  LUMITRANCE

Even in the early morning the fair was packed full of people

Wall paper art still seems to be popular in art fair, which whilst it looks lovely is highly impractical for the everyday person.
