Meet the London Illustration Fair team
The London Illustration Fair is an annual, artist-led illustration, print and graphic design fair, bringing artists and buyers together in a unique environment. The fair offers the chance for illustration lovers to come face to face with their favourite artists and discover amazing new artwork from emerging illustrators. There is something for every pocket from exclusive original pieces to prints and gifts for under ten pounds.
How do our events work?
Due to a successful move of venue to the Bargehouse on London's Southbank in 2015, The London Illustration Fair will now focus its attention to bring you one bigger, better and more entertaining event every year. This move will give us the opportunity to focus more time and energy to develop the online shop as well as refine the brand in a more creative and versatile direction.
Our aim? To explore the multitudinal microcosms of the illustration universe, championed by London's diverse Illustration scene. We want to seek out what contemporary illustration really means within todays society and what makes todays illustrators tick. So what can you expect?
The London Illustration Fair
The London Illustration Fair sets out to showcase, support and champion the biggest and best, most creative and downright inspiring Illustrators, collectives, companies, galleries, and creative start-ups making an impact in the scene today. The artists are given creative freedom to engage, enrich and inspire their audience, sell you their goods and just generally have a good time!
Here's where illustrators make a name for themselves, stand besides their peers and show you all what they've got up their sleeve. In addition expect plenty of mulled wine, murals, exclusive prints and a full on party vibe perfect for the festive month. Expect to splash paint with some of your favourite creatives, learn a technique or two, swap ideas or business cards with the agency of the moment or simply gaggle on about all things creative at our fully stocked bar.
Who are we?
The London Illustration Fair was founded in 2013 by two school friends, Alastair Eland and Sam Bennett, who shared the aim of creating events that capture the enjoyment and creativity of an industry flourishing with talent and passion. The London Illustration Fair 2017 will be our 7th event, and of course, the best yet!
