Affordable Art Fair Brussels

Affordable Art Fair Brussels

The concept is simple, the name says it all really. The Brussels Affordable Art Fair is about making contemporary art available to the masses. Thousands of original paintings, prints, sculpture and photography all under the one roof and all priced between €50 to €6,000. By concentrating on relatively unknown artists not carrying a premium for reputation, the fair — and many others like it around the world — offer up art for prices at the lower end of the spectrum. It's proven to be a popular formula. Not only can you satisfy all your art-viewing and art-buying needs, you can grab a feed at the Fair's restaurant, or a little liquid refreshment at the wine bar. You can educate yourself with some expert advice, or even get your hands dirty at an exciting or workshop designed to help you unleash your creative spirit. Perhaps even take home a masterpiece of your own creation.
