The Maverick Expo is an alternative to the major art fairs, bringing fresh talent to London from around the globe and from all disciplines of the Arts – including short film, performance art and electronic music. It serves as a platform for emerging artists to present their work directly to collectors and art lovers. The place and the date of the Expo have not been chosen randomly: it coincides with Frieze London, and the fantastic venue in W1, off London’s busy Oxford Circus, is a mere ten minutes walk from Frieze’s Regent Park. It’s been done deliberately in an attempt to expose these talented artists to the many collectors and art lovers who attend the larger event. To make things easier, there will be a regular shuttle service connecting the two events.

Amongst the artists that will be featured at the Expo is Quite Useless, a company of British artists formed young curator Sascha Bailey. Quite Useless epitomises the spirit of this Expo: it is a company formed from frustration with the current state of affairs in the art world. It includes works by photographer Fenton Bailey (himself and Sascha being the sons of iconic photographer David Bailey), sculptor Connor Hirst, son of artist Damien Hirst, Jack Daniels, the erotic and provocative portraits of Mairi-luise Tabbakh and John Luce Lockett’s classically beautiful oil-paintings.

Other artists to discover at the Maverick Expo are Elena Moaty, from Paris, recently graduated from the prestigious Beaux Arts, who has already gained fame with her powerful messages and dream-like imagery; Harif Guzman, who first became known as a street artist in New York under the adopted alter ego, Haculla, and now is recognised for his vibrant provocative and dark-in-nature work, which explores women, materialism and popular culture; and Japanese-born Ayako David Kawauchi, whose minimalist work transforms paper, charcoal and chalk into haunting yet delicate portraits with themes of childhood and identity. SEEN will certainly be going, ready to inhale deeply with other London art lovers.

Dinny Hall: A Shining Star

SEEN had the privilege recently, of hearing iconic jeweller Dinny Hall speak about her life and career in jewellery and design. She started off in the seventies when jewellery didn’t have the profile it has now, so in that sense she was very much a pioneer. She hung out with the cool musicians of the …
