World's First Sustainable Art Fair, Launches In London
Abstract Art Fair, the world’s first sustainable art fair, launches in Isleworth, Greater London on June 8. Designed as a space to offer art lovers access to beautiful handcrafted, sustainable art at affordable prices, encouraging investment in art produced in England with zero plastic. Taking place the week following the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the exhibition will be on for five days until June 12, and will be a cultural highlight in the art calendar. Presented by Abstract House, a leading manufacturer of sustainable art and picture frames, the event is hosted by entrepreneur Omar Obaid, an established abstract artist whose work was commissioned for Ceasar’s Forum, Las Vegas and has also appeared on Bravo! TV’s Million Dollar Listing New York. The exhibition will showcase ‘The Green Room: Regeneration’, a visual display of dried flower wall art encompassing the impact our everyday patterns play on preserving nature’s beauty.
In addition, during the event, over 1000 seeds will be planted as part of a biophilic display to embrace the environment. ‘Bringing art lovers together with gallery quality, handcrafted and sustainable art is pivotal in encouraging a lifelong investment in British art. Enabling an enjoyable platform to experience the art in person and discover art you love is what we are all about. Beautiful quality art that is produced in England needn’t cost the Earth, or the planet. As a 100% zero plastic organisation, we are committed to sustainability in everything we do,’ said Omar Obaid, Abstract Art Fair CEO and founder
