During the first week of October most of the art world descends on London as the Frieze comes to the capital. But art aficionados in the know will be making a beeline for Berkeley Square to nose around the less sung about PAD London Art Fair which runs until 8th October.
First established in London in 2007, PAD London – a spin off from PAD Paris – offers an eclectic mix of contemporary art spanning modern art, design, the decorative arts, photography and tribal art. This year, emerging British designers such as Matthew Chambers, Bethan Laura Wood and London-based duo Brooksbank & Collins take the spotlight among exceptional pieces from designers from around the world including an entirely new body of aluminium work by South Korean designer Wonmin Park.
Whether looking to purchase a work of art, or simply to marvel at the pieces on display, there is something that will catch the eye of every visitor. Here we round up some of the highlights.
