The inconspicuously named The Other Art Fair is back. This year, it has set up in a great new space at COMMUNE Waterloo and features more than 100 emerging artists handpicked by a committee of art industry experts.

To get your art collection started, here are 5 artists you won’t want to miss:

  1. Niloufar Tofigh’s wistful paintings often take images of women as their theme

2. Robin Clare is a contemporary Jamaican artist with a passion for promoting her national culture – her work often features street slang, party names and dance techniques

3. Elefteria Vlavianos derives imagery from her Greek/Armenian heritage, taking pleasure in small cultural objects that are often displaced
