WOULD YOU like a Banksy or Damien Hirst for your home? Then you may want to get along to the Art Fair East at Nor­wich’s St Andrew’s Hall this month.

Lim­ited edi­tions from those stel­lar names, plus works from 75 other artists, will be on show and avail­able to buy for art lovers look­ing for the chance to ex­pand an ex­ist­ing art col­lec­tion, start their own journey into col­lect­ing or buy orig­i­nal and au­then­tic Christmas presents for loved ones.

Last year more than 3,500 visi­tors came to meet artists and art ex­perts at Art Fair East, which was founded by Nor­wich­based Will Teather and Brian Kortel­ing. Suc­cess­ful artists them­selves, the or­gan­is­ers are pas­sion­ate about get­ting more peo­ple in­ter­ested in orig­i­nal con­tem­po­rary art and help­ing artists to make a liv­ing from their work.

“We have a pas­sion to get peo­ple more in­volved in art, to value it and cher­ish it. I be­lieve this will be the first time that signed edi­tions of work by the likes of Damien Hirst and Banksy will be avail­able in the re­gion,” said Will.

Also on show will be work from the Nor­wich School of Painters, in­clud­ing names such as John Kiki and Bruer Tid­man, and artists from the UK, USA, Ger­many, Le­banon, France and more, many of who will be there in per­son to dis­cuss their work.

Gallery spe­cial­ists will be avail­able to ad­vise on col­lect­ing con­tem­po­rary art, from af­ford­able prints by recog­nised artists and new tal­ent through to se­ri­ous in­vest­ments, in­clud­ing orig­i­nal paint­ings, prints, sculp­ture, photography and art­works made to com­mis­sion.

Art Fair East runs from Novem­ber 30 un­til De­cem­ber 3.
