LONDON CONTEMPORARY is an International Art Fair that presents collective and solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. The 2023 edition represents a forum for the direct exchange of ideas and contacts between collectors, artists, photographers, designers and art professionals. The art fair features paintings, sculptures, photography, installations, video art and live performance.

It analyzed the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary times.

We invited artists, architects and designers to be inspired by the magical power of London, exploring the connection between desires, needs, and fears through rituals that bring humankind to change, transform and evolve their inner world.

The remarkable outcome of the latest edition of London Contemporary was possible thanks to the talent of artists exhibiting from all over the world. Visitors were drawn into Souad Haddad’s artworks, a collection of paintings that focuses on Spring and the emotions and beauty typical of this season. Her canvases feature innovative textures with dripping effects and reliefs, to achieve an explosion of happiness and hope to transmit to the viewer. To Haddad, Spring reminds us that each and everyone has a blooming side we should never forget and the importance of staying close to explore humankind’s connections.

Thanks to the standout artworks of Frederique Montalti, the venue was enriched with harmony and luminosity. Celebrating life and freedom, they combine abstraction and figuration, to spark the imagination and reveal harmonious diversity. Frederique explores universal themes of world preservation and connection, with canvases inspired by nature in contemporary times. By applying old master’s techniques, she accomplishes her goal as an artist to brighten the soul, by exposing the magic in and around people.

Contributing to the overall experience is Christa Grenawalt with “Aqua Vitae”, an immense canvas portraying the powerful weather events that affected California. Her whole research as an artist focuses on themes of vitality, transformation, and the interrelationship between the natural world and our own bodies and lives, resonating with the themes of the exhibition. Her pieces invite contemplation on the enduring significance of water in shaping our world and our place within it.

The talented artist Aki Sakagami showcases for London contemporary “The Hado Art”, her very personal way of seeing the frequency and energy emitted by all people, animals, objects, and things. Outing the viewer’s inner world, her artworks are pure energy that makes people realize how important it is to believe in themselves and live life to the fullest.
